Dementia care

中文 Chinese Version 

Long term care is one of the most rapidly growing industries in the world, especially in Asia where the number of people aged 80 and above will quadruple to more than 250 million by 2050. This conference will bring together academics, policy makers and industry leaders to explore new directions in Long Term Care, focusing on the coordination between policy initiatives and industry and investment imperatives. Opportunities for interaction between industry representatives, and between industry and policy makers, will be facilitated.

This is the fourth conference in a triennial series which began in 2007 in Berlin, with more than 1000 participants. Since then, events have been held in Hong Kong and Atlanta, and the conference series has gained an enviable reputation as one of the world’s strongest in bringing together industry and policy leaders in the field.

The program will comprise a combination of keynote presentations, panels, plenary sessions and concurrent contributed papers. Topics to be addressed will include but are not limited to: Long-term care insurance and investment, care models for the future, aged care workforce, assistive technologies, and allied health support.
