Dementia Academy will hold a live webinar on Friday, 29 May at 15:00 BST to provide an update on the emerging medical and scientific literature regarding dementia in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will revisit some questions we posed to our panel in our earlier webinars.
We will address issues such as:
- What proportion of people with dementia have been affected by COVID-19?
- What proportion of COVID-19 deaths have occurred in people with dementia?
- What are neurologic sequelae of COVID-19?
- What is the impact of COVID-19 on people with dementia living at home or in care homes?
- How has practice changed to accommodate it?
- Is there any updated scientific literature to support decision making?
You are invited to watch the live webinar from your computer, tablet or phone. The webinar will be live for one hour and a recording will be available on our website following the meeting.
This session will be hosted by a panel of geriatric psychiatrists, a neurologist and a geriatrician working in different clinical settings such as outpatient memory clinics, care homes, and mental health inpatient units.
