On the 18th of May 2017, the second Dementia Forum X was organised at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. More than a hundred key stakeholders from within the care, research, society, business and finance sectors participated and actively discussed dementia, to jointly define related challenges and innovative solutions.
We strive for continuous improvement of ideas and solutions developed throughout the biannual Dementia Forum X meetings. During the preparatory working meetings, between the main events, a smaller group evaluated and clarifed goals previously determined. On this basis, new challenges are to be identified and actions prompted. By following up on the conclusions and continuing the dialogue, we aim not only to advance the discussions on dementia care, but also to achieve tangible outcomes.
When Dementia Forum X was organised for the first time in 2015, the goal was to connect stakeholders throughout society in order to take responsibility and action on the future global challenges related to demographic changes. We stay true to this goal and are committed to improving the lives of those living with dementia, their family members and caregivers.
We are also deeply grateful to our collaboration partners – Forte, Karolinska Institutet, Stiftelsen Silviahemmet, Svenskt Demenscentrum, Swedish Care International and other partners – AARP, Aleris, Alzheimerfonden, BoKlok, Cambio Healthcare Systems, Dr Åke Olssons Stiftelse, Eli Lilly, Getinge Group, Home Instead Senior Care, Northern Horizon, Otsuka, Roche, Skandia and Öhman. Support from these organisations has helped create the foundation, which this project firmly stands upon.
