There is strength in unity. And when the great and the good come together in a bid to improve lives affected by a seemingly incurable disease, the Social Care News blog will always promote and endorse such worthy enterprises.
The G8 Dementia Summit, taking place today at Lancaster House in London, brings together ministers, researchers, pharmaceutical companies and charities in the shared enterprise to boost progress in the global battle against dementia.
Together, they will seek to agree what can be done to boost investment and innovation in research, improve prevention and treatment, and improve quality of life for people with dementia.
Whether you are living with dementia, or are a carer or commissioner of dementia care and support services, you might like to know there will be live video streaming of the main sessions and a blog providing a written commentary. This is a tremendous opportunity to find out more about international efforts to combat the disease.
Full details of the summit programme are now available.
