Ferndown people will have the opportunity to put their questions to the experts and find out a little more about dementia next week as the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Community Roadshow rolls into town.
The pioneering national tour will be stopping off outside the Barrington Centre on Tuesday 15th April. It aims to increase local awareness and understanding of the condition which affects over 13,000 people in Dorset. It will offer free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition, as well as helping to promote the benefits of an early diagnosis. It is open to people currently living with dementia, who are worried about a friend or relative’s memory or who just have questions about the condition. No appointment is needed.
The Dementia Community Roadshow is part of the legacy of the Charity of the Year partnership between Tesco, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland in 2011.
