Today. Proud to give #dementia MasterClass MacKay Hannah Productive Ageing Summit October 3rd key note speakers announced

Speaking at MacKay Hannah Productive Ageing Summit October 3rd


With great thanks to Mark from MacKay Hannah for the opportunity to speak at their Productive Ageing Summit being held in Edinburgh on the 3rd of October

The aim of the event is to encourage a shift in focus and attitude from the challenges provided by an ageing population, to the opportunities and assets they bring

I look forward to talking about this change from a personal point of view, and the importance of treating older people with dignity respect and as unique individuals, not defined by their age or a long term condition
