Dementia Information Hub: Launching Tuesday 24 May, 16:00pm

It’s difficult to know where to go to find the latest dementia specific guidance. To combat this issue, The Dementia and Housing Working Group is launching a “go-to” resource for use by policy makers, RPs and housing developers, health and care professionals, those living with dementia and their support networks, the home improvement sector, and building environment supply chains.

The aim of the information hub is to create a pool of information, and signpost users to a plethora of credible resources. The hub, which has been created using an online platform called ‘Padlet’, will be launching officially on Tuesday 24 May at 16:00 via a Housing LIN Happi Hour.

Guinness is a member of the Dementia and Housing Working Group, which brings together a wide range of stakeholders to focus specifically on housing and dementia.
