Dementia Detectives


The University of Bradford is busting myths surrounding Dementia with a unique 'Dementia Detective' session for students.

Students will have the opportunity to learn from some of the leading experts in the field how to support people to live well with dementia and by attending the workshop will become a Dementia Friend, a valuable addition to their CV.

Two sessions are being held daily on Monday 23, Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 May, 10.30-12noon and 2-3.30pm. Students are invited to book onto a session or for more information contact Dr Sahdia Parveen on

Dr Parveen said: “Many of our students will either know someone with Dementia or someone who is involved in Dementia care. This is an opportunity to learn more about Dementia and to equip themselves with the skills and confidence to support people to live well with dementia. It’s also a chance to bust any myths or preconceptions that people may have.

This year's Dementia Awareness Week, 15 – 21 May, championed by the Alzheimer’s Society will encourage people who are worried about dementia to confront their worries by addressing dementia directly.

The University of Bradford was presented with a coveted Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for its world-leading work to improve the lives of people living with dementia.
