Invitation to the 2nd Krems Dementia Conference (VIRTUAL), 16th – 18th November 2020

Dear dementia friends,


timely diagnosis can greatly improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their families and loved ones. In the 2nd Krems Dementia Conference we will bring the latest findings & ideas on prevention, timely diagnosis and support for persons with dementia – due to the current corona situation online via live transmission and for free– directly to your home or office. International participants from different professions and disciplines will provide insights into the activities of Western and Eastern European countries in order to create the basis for cross-national cooperation that will enable improvements in the care of people with dementia and their relatives. The aim is to present and discuss approaches, best practice models, results and ideas from research and practice for the support of people with dementia. Experts will draw first conclusions & learning experiences from the COVID 19-pandemic for people with dementia and their relatives.

You are also welcome to bring in your own experiences!
