12:30-1:30pm - light lunch

1:30-4:00pm - Ticket to Talk

Ticket to talk is a project aimed at developing supportive technology to help younger people talk to older relatives or friends who have a diagnosis of dementia.  The project developed from conversations with young carers who identified difficulties in maintaining conversations with older relatives or friends with dementia, as often they didn’t know what topics would be interesting because they sometimes lacked shared interests o experiences.  Ticket to Talk has been developed by a researcher at Open Lab, Newcastle University.
