Tuesday 29 June 2021, 11.00am – 12.30pm
Overview: Since the pandemic, thousands of people with dementia have seen a devastating deterioration in symptoms due to lockdown causing social isolation, and health or social care service interruptions. The Covid crisis has piled pressure family carers whose responsibilities had increased during lockdown, sometimes to detrimental personal cost.
This webinar will explore what needs to happen in the dementia care sector in order to avoid families and friends being left out in the community to fend for themselves, as their loved ones decline.
Speaker: Professor Jill Manthorpe, King’s College London
