Overview

OTAC’s Eleventh event and have we got an event for you!

 Thursday 26th April 2018 we are heading to Weetwood Hall for a day packed with the latest equipment and adaptation guidance, you will require in your day to day practice.

We have once again made this opportunity FREE of charge.  There will be fresh tea and coffee throughout the day and plenty of places to relax, network and grab a bite to eat either through the on-site buffet or in the hotels own restaurant.

I hope you take this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge around adaptations and equipment not only for personal development and reflection but to also to enable you to showcase the value an Occupational Therapist or individual specializing in adaptations for the disabled can bring within housing adaptations regardless of your working environment.

We hope you have a fantastic conference and enjoy networking with other professionals whilst gaining invaluable CPD opportunities for free.

 

Foundations – Beyond the Front Door – 

Dementia and Housing Conference Leeds

10:00 – 15:30 

This event will be co-located within OTAC and offered FREE of charge. To get your ticket today – Visit the following Link https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/beyond-the-front-door-dementia-and-housing-conference-leeds-tickets-42497146108

Our home – the place and the people – provides a major focus in our lives and is particularly important when we face transitions such as discharge from hospital or following a diagnosis of dementia. ‘Beyond the Front Door’ will explore issues relating to the concept of ‘home’ to better understand their importance in relation to the sense of identity and wellbeing for people living with dementia.

The conference will be an opportunity for occupational therapists, housing support sectors, social housing providers, commissioners and those working in the voluntary sector to come together to learn from the Life Story Network’s ‘Beyond the Front Door’ report, support the development of toolkits and begin to embed responses to dementia in to projects and programmes of work relating to the home.

Our event will be informed and led by people living with dementia, and will include policy context, practical examples of best practice, expert panel discussions and workshops.
