We were delighted to welcome over 200 delegates at the Annual Dementia Conference 2015 'From Demonstration to Implementation - Making Personalised Supports a Reality' on Thursday 3rd December in Dublin. We hosted a range of excellent speakers on the day and are now pleased to announce that resources from the presentations are available to view and download.
