Healthcare Innovation Expo

Department of Health to build ‘Dementia Village’ at Healthcare Innovation Expo

The Department of Health (DH) is hosting a major dementia event at the Healthcare Innovation Expo at ExCeL London on 13 and 14 of March 2013. A dedicated area of the exhibition hall will be devoted to a ‘Dementia Village’ to showcase good practice and innovation in dementia care, dementia friendly communities and research.
The village will contain a main stage for speakers, a village green and bandstand with leisure and entertainment activities to get involved in, and a house demonstrating ways that we can support people with dementia and their carers to live well.
There will be a school hosting workshops and sessions enabling people to become Dementia Friends. A high street will house a number of organisations taking innovative approaches to helping people living with dementia, and a cinema will show dementia-related films. Trevor’s Garden will provide a quiet space for delegates and information on the potential benefits of dementia friendly gardens. This is an artist’s impression of what the village will look like:
Healthcare Innovation Expo is the largest healthcare innovation event in Europe. The main objective of the expo is to encourage the spread of innovations that have a significant impact on improving the quality of patient care and productivity in the UK. There will be a wide range of exhibitors, including DH and many of the new NHS organisations such as the NHS Commissioning Board. There will be a comprehensive seminar programme with more than 100 seminars to choose from. Up to 10,000 delegates are expected to attend over 2 days.
