Dementia, with its many faces and roots, represents a great emotional burden for the individual facing his losses, his relatives and friends, and a great economic burden for society and the state. It is therefore important to seize every opportunity to raise awareness and de-stigmatise this disease. So, it was natural for us in the Ormož Psychiatric Hospital to approach this international conference, in which we want to participate in terms of organisation as well as content.

Miloš Židanik, MSc (55 y) is Medicine Director and Research Assistant at the Ormož Psychiatric Hospital.
