Her Royal Highness has a long held interest in dementia and she established a foundation to train health and social workers on dementia care many years ago.
Queen Sofia of Spain too, who was also a participant at the event, also has a foundation that gives considerable focus to dementia. Others at the event with an interest in the issue were Princess Takamoda of Japan and the First Lady of Chile, Cecilia Morel. Queen Silvia spent her formative years in Brazil and retains a close association with the country. She is fluent in Portuguese.

This report shows the real life of older adults in Japan. Their labour participation rate, financial assets, relationships with neighbours are described first, and then systems such as pension, medical and long-term care are being explained with numbers and figures.
ILC-Japan has been promoting public-industry collaboration to enhance support for older adults in daily living. After conducting studies with community support coordinators and creating a tool with tips to make improvements, we are now in the implementation stage to build actual collaboration between supermarkets and municipalities.
This Summer, ILC-UK's Founder and Executive President, and one of the founding members of the ILC Global Alliance, Baroness Sally Greengross OBE passed away. She was an inspiration to us all across the ILC family, both professionally and personally, and her legacy will continue to live on.
