Over 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia and this costs £26 billion per year with family carers saving the UK £11 billion. What is the role of the housing profession in relation to this service area?

The Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland has commissioned independent housing consultancy Arneil Johnston to conduct research for the second phase of the Housing and Dementia Programme which focuses on improving the links between housing organisations and partners with a specific focus on the role of the housing profession in meeting the needs of those living with dementia.

Having already mapped out key processes and identified skill and knowledge requirements, this practice exchange event aims to provide a platform for exploring good practice that can be replicated across the sector. The event will also explore the potential for housing organisations to become dementia friendly businesses and major drivers in developing dementia friendly communities.

It will take place at the The Teacher Building in Glasgow and delegates will be provided with all refreshments and lunch.

You can view the current programme here.

  • Gaining an insight into the findings of the research so far, including good practice pathways and skills and knowledge assessment of the housing profession in Scotland;
