I’m a carer or person living with
dementia – why should I attend?

The International Lewy Body Dementia Conference 2022 will be a large global conference and is an extremely important event for scientists, researchers and professionals who are dedicated to improving our understanding of the disease, and how best to diagnose and manage it. But the voices of those living every day with Lewy body dementia and its effects are critical to this work, and the conference will have a distinct strand that is designed with your interests in mind.

If you are considering attending, these are the benefits that you will experience:

  • Hear the latest research developments and the progress we are making in diagnosing and managing Lewy body dementia, and find out how you can participate in research.
  • Have the opportunity to meet and network with other people living with dementia and their carers, who will understand what you are going through.
  • Hear inspirational speakers who can help you build resilience and maintain positivity as you live with the impact of Lewy body dementia.
As a carer or someone living with dementia, we understand that it can be a daunting prospect to attend a conference, especially if you will need to stay away from home. As more information is released about the conference, we will use this page to provide information about travel, accommodation and what will happen at the conference. We are committed to making the event fully accessible to people living with dementia and supporting the participation of as many people as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
