Anna Chaplaincy & Dementia Conference

The Cumbria Annual Dementia Anna Chaplaincy Conference will take place on-line this year on

18th September 2021

The annual Dementia conference is being broadened to consider all older people’s faith journeys. It will be held this year on September 18th 2021, and will be in an online format.

The conference title is ‘Breathing in Hope: Working with Stories of Change’ and we aim to create an opportunity for people to hear about stories of hope that bring about good changes for older people and people with dementia.

We are very pleased to welcome a number of speakers who will share their expertise and experiences. Our speakers include Keith Albans, Methodist Minister and former Director of Chaplaincy and Spirituality at MHA Homes, and Kathryn Lord who will introduce us to Stories for the Soul offering an experiential way to share faith stories that feed our soul.

There will also be speakers talking about practical initiatives being undertaken to provide telephone befriending (Linking Lives), setting up friends groups for care homes (Care Home Friends) and the provision of music for people with dementia (Lyrics and Lunch).

Please put this date in the diary - information about how to book a place will be available shortly.
