Clare Jefferies speaks at Dementia 2020 Conference in London

Clare Jefferies was delighted to be a keynote speaker at the Dementia 2020 conference at the Royal Society of Medicine.

The conference was looking at how far we have come and how far we have got to go to ensure that every single person living with dementia has the best possible life they can.

Clare gave an emotional and 'inspirational' talk on what it is really like to care for someone at home with dementia. She spoke about the importance of understanding the person, not the diagnosis, She also talked about the importance of understanding that everyone who has dementia is still the person they were before their diagnosis.
