National Quarterly Event “Dementia and Rights”
September 14, 2016

Date: Wed 14 September 2016

University of Bradford - Richmond Road - Bradford

Everyone has human rights and this does not stop when a person receives a diagnosis of dementia. The health and social care sector can and should play an important role in ensuring that these rights are understood and met.

Through this event we will explore the different rights that people affected by dementia should be afforded and how you can implement these in your organisation.

Not only will we explore key legislation, we will also hear real-life stories during this interactive and engaging day.
