A Conference for Caregivers and Healthcare Professionals

Dear All,

You are cordially invited to join us in Kuala Lumpur for the ADFM National Caregivers Conference 2016 which is a joint organised event with University of Malaya in conjunction with the global commemoration of  World Alzheimer’s Month in September each year.

DATE : September 24 & 25, 2016 (Saturday & Sunday)
THEME: “Caregiver’s Journey

September month will mark the yearly global campaign to spread greater awareness of dementia among the public; to change the stigma and people’s perceptions on Alzheimer’s disease (AD); to reflect on what we can do to support and improve the lives of people with dementia and their caregivers.  

This year our conference theme is “Caregiver’s Journey” and it reflects ADFM’s objective to engage with carers of people suffering from dementia and healthcare professionals. To assist caregivers who wish to attend this conference but unable to leave their charge, we are providing special care service - our trained personnel will engage their loved ones in fun-filled and supervised activity during the 1+1/2 day conference. Please note this service is limited to 30 registered participants (AD persons) and terms and condition applies.

The event is a one and a half days of seminars, talks, and forums, covering an array of topics such as medical and psychological management of Alzheimer’s disease, support and care resources for carers, nutrition, financial and care planning and developments toward person-centred dementia care. Our speakers include specialists from various fields: doctors, psychologists, educators, geriatricians, and professor of law. The forum is an opportunity not to be missed, especially for those who wish to engage with a panel of specialist doctors.

The Conference Program encompasses talks, seminars and forums. Plus for the first time ever, we offer a unique session which will be conducted in Mandarin. Seats availability is based on first-come-first-served basis.
