Hope for Home Study Day

Dementia End of Life Care at Home: Bereavement and Loss


As the result of an exciting partnership between Hope for Home, Ardgowan Hospice and Campbell Snowdon Care Home we invite you to join us for a study day which will bring together a diverse group of people with an interest in dementia and end of life care, including opinion leaders, academics, clinical practitioners, community development experts and family carers.

The day will report on developing and established research, explore innovative projects, and facilitate the sharing of ideas and views in consideration of some of the key challenges and opportunities to be faced in the next 5 years. This is a day which will have wide appeal to anyone concerned with the care of people with dementia and/or who is interested in end of life and bereavement care
