Since the dawn of human civilization, people have been trying to diagnose and treat diseases. However, it is still one of the most mysterious aspects of life. We are not sure what actually causes dementia, whether it is lifestyle habits or diseases we may be suffering from that we don’t know about yet.
There are many theories and research work on the subject but there is very little that has been written on this topic: what causes dementia and how can we prevent it? The Dementia Festival of Ideas (DFoI) aims to gather together those interested in this topic and write a scientific paper on this subject.

Dementia is a neurodegenerative condition which can be brought about by multiple factors such as genetics and aging. Therefore, it is essential to understand its causes and develop strategies for prevention and treatment.

Come to our event and talk to us about dementia
As we know, the human brain is an amazing machine. But we’re not sure how it works; we can only speculate and imagine. We’ve seen the results of brain scanning and “brain-computer interfaces” like prosthetics. But what if we could take these technologies to another level?
The Dementia Festival of Ideas is a platform for people to share their ideas about what it means to be demented, while also featuring talks on cognitive science, clinical trials and how Alzheimer’s affects our lives.
In the future, diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s will be among the most important topics in journalism. The problem with this is that it is difficult to write about them because of the lack of information.
This festival aims to bring those people who are affected by those diseases along with a writer to a conference where they can talk about what they think dementia means and how it affects their lives.
We invited many dementia experts
If you are a business owner, you might know about the importance of content marketing. But how do you get your customers to read your content? How do you engage them in the conversation? Can they understand what your message is trying to say?
With the help of dementia experts, Dementia Festival of Ideas, we can ask these questions. There are many dementia experts in our world who think that anybody who has dementia is someone with whom we should be able to converse. They can help us by sharing their experiences and insights about this issue. These experts will discuss different aspects like:
With the increase in awareness and debate about dementia, we’ve seen a rise in public interest in understanding and facing the condition.
The event was also to raise awareness of the importance of supporting people living with dementia. The festival aimed to share experiences and resources on dementia, encourage discussion and inspire creativity. It was organised by Dementia Forum, an association for people living with dementia, during London Dementia Festival 2018; an event which celebrated its 10th anniversary. The theme for this year’s festival was ‘Dementia: a social problem’.
