We have left these talks on the website so you can catch up on what you missed!

These talks on the topic of Dementia were open to any in the community who wanted to come to think about how we can understand and best support those living with this illness. Each session began with an evening meal, followed by a talk (titles and speakers below), and opportunity for questions and discussion.
