Our annual Enhancing Care Conference is an educational experience for Health Care Professionals that helps to provide the tools and specialized training that one needs when caring for persons with dementia.  The conference is ideal for those providing care in the homes of those living with dementia, in Special Care Homes, Nursing Homes, and Acute Care.

This year we are excited to announce that our conference will be growing from a one day to a two day event. Both days will have plenary keynote speakers, a number of breakout sessions and workshops to choose from.

DAY ONE: Clinical and leadership focus
DAY TWO: Tailored to provide hands on tips and tools

Topics covered on the two days include person centred care planning, working within a multigenerational workforce, policy and ethical decision making, reducing stress and burnout, respecting individual choice, and improving the mealtime experience.  All presentations will focus on how to apply learnings using a person centred approach.
