Special dementia panel organised at Finnish Parliament


Members of the national and regional working groups of people with dementia and their carers gathered at the Finnish Parliament on 1 February, to put questions to a panel of MPs. Whilst a lively discussion covered various topics regarding dementia, the most popular themes proved to be the role of carers and housing issues. The event was organised by the Alzheimer Society of Finland (Muistiliitto) and the Finnish Parliament Dementia Group (comprised of MPs interested in dementia issues). This highly topical event coincided with the kick-off of election campaigns by political parties and candidates in Finland, as the country gets ready for parliamentary elections in April 2023.
