Dementia and Family Carers Conference

Dementia and Family Carers Conference

More than 90 carers, leading experts in the field of dementia and Carers Victoria representatives gathered for the Dementia and Family Carers conference.

More than 90 carers, leading experts in the field of dementia and Carers Victoria representatives gathered at the William Angliss Conference Centre on 25 June 2019 for the Dementia and Family Carers conference. On the day, carers were treated to a variety of presentations from guest speakers representing Dementia Australia, Thrive Rehab, Japara and Northern Health and heard about the latest research and innovative approaches in dementia care.

The event also provided a great opportunity for carers to mingle and connect over their shared experiences in caring for a person with dementia.

By all accounts it proved to be a successful and worthwhile event. Carers Victoria thanks our industry partners for their support in delivering the conference and to all carers who travelled from across Victoria to participate.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in organising this event. It was so well-presented, informative and covered aspects surrounding the topic that I had not even thought about. The biggest thing for me was how moving it was to see so many different walks of life getting together to support each other and collaborate ideas. Absolutely amazing!" - Selina Stephens

"It was a wonderful day. It was so informative. I learnt many new things. I met a couple of new people. The reception staff were lovely. The MC was great and the way he intertwined the Welcome to Country with Carers roles and caring for the country was wonderful. A really worthwhile experience, thank you." - Jo Gibbons
