Island hosts dementia conference

A conference to discuss all aspects of dementia was staged in the Isle of Man yesterday (Tuesday).

The event at the Villa Marina heard about the latest approach towards diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, and the care pathway for sufferers.
Expert speakers from the UK suggested how lessons learned there can be applied to the Isle of Man.

NHS England's national clinical director for dementia Professor Alistair Burns, in the Island for the event, took part in a panel discussion and an audience question and answer session.

Grahame Bell of the Alzheimer's Society in the Island said the target was to reach everyone who needs help and support.
