Post by Phil Allen Head of Supplier Engagement at Really Useful Stuff

I visted the Dementia Care Show today in Birmingham to learn more about how outdoor spaces can benefit people with Alzheimer’s, what colours work well for people with cognitive impairments and how to go about making your home dementia friendly.

The Care Show attracts decision makers from care homes, nursing homes, housing providers, NHS, local authority and other organisations who are responsible for the care and wellbeing of older people.

These buyers attend Care Show to:

• find out about the latest products and services
• network and form connections with industry peers,
• attend educational program of seminar sessions
• find out about the latest developments in their industry.

The Dementia Care Show is a must attend event for buyers of care products and services and for exhibitors who are targeting care providers. The two previous shows saw almost 400 exhibition stands set up to meet over 4,500 visitors.

A few of the suppliers to Really Useful Stuff were exhibiting

I caught up with a friend Evalin who said “It’s amazing how many products there are now to help people live independently, I never realised.”
