More Help for Dorset Residents Concerned Over Dementia

carer

8:43am 23rd October 2013

It's a condition that affects nearly 14,000 thousand people in Dorset.

A special roadshow is at Tesco in Dorchester for the next two days to raise awareness and understanding about Dementia.

If you're living with dementia or are worried about a friend of family member's memory, you can go along and get some expert advice.

The roadshow will be in place from 10am till 4pm.

Jo Malyon, Alzheimer's Society's Support Services Manager for Dorset, said:

"The Dementia Community Roadshow helps us to reach out to local communities and people who may not know where to turn for help. Getting a diagnosis is the first step in unlocking the support and potential treatments that are available. Receiving an early diagnosis enables people to get access to support when they need it and gives them the opportunity to plan for the future. We're here to provide people with information about where to get help and encourage those with concerns about their memory to visit their GP."    

Michael Kissman, Community Director at Tesco said: "With stores all over the South West of England, we're extremely proud to help Alzheimer's Society raise awareness of dementia. The Roadshow is part of the legacy from our Charity of the Year partnership with the society and we hope that it contributes to building a better future for people with dementia."
