Care Development East set to host Dementia Marketplace to boost support for carers and families

Following the success of last year’s event, Care Development East is excited to announce the return of its annual dementia-focused gathering, set for Thursday, 13th June at Trinity Park in Ipswich. This year’s event promises to be more informative and impactful than ever. Taking place during Carers Week, the event is organised in collaboration with the Suffolk Dementia Action Partnership.

The focus of the event is to highlight the extensive array of information, guidance, and support accessible to individuals with dementia and their carers in Suffolk, ensuring they receive appropriate assistance from the right sources when needed. The event will primarily feature a marketplace with stalls hosted by various organisations and groups dedicated to aiding those affected by dementia in the region.

In addition to the marketplace, the event will include a series of keynote sessions and presentations. These sessions will be led by individuals with personal experiences with dementia and will cover topics like safeguarding, support for carers and families, and community living. Participants will gain practical insights on managing and living well with the condition.

“We are excited to build on the success of last year’s event with an even more inspiring and informative gathering this Carers Week,” said Christian Bone, Chief Executive of Care Development East. “In partnership with the Suffolk Dementia Action Partnership, we have designed an event that not only supports those living with dementia and their carers but also the local community by providing vital information and resources.

Whether you are a carer, have a family member in the early stages of dementia, or are several years into your dementia journey, our sessions are a great way to learn more and make it as smooth and stress-free as possible moving forward.”

The Dementia Marketplace 2024 will take place on Thursday, June 13th, from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Trinity Park Conference & Events Centre in Ipswich, Suffolk. Advanced registration is recommended and available on Eventbrite Dementia Marketplace 2024 Tickets, Thu 13 Jun 2024 at 10:00 | Eventbrite
