Mayor Teunis Westbroek will start the event with opening remarks followed by Marc Wortmann (Alzheimer’s Disease International) who will discuss the current impact of dementia on a global level.  Elena and Nico Binns will be speaking about how Bruges in Belgium took it upon themselves to become the most dementia friendly community in the world.  Laura Booi will discuss her dementia care research and how as a community we may be able to care for people with dementia. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in discussions surrounding a possible vision for what Dementia Friendly Qualicum may look like.
