Alzheimers Support In Bridport

Bridport Sign

8:43am 10th November 2014

The Alzheimer's Society in Bridport is offering people suffering from dementia and their carers in the town a new support session with a festive touch.

They're running a Christmas craft session on the 24th of November where those with the disease can help make decorations for the charity's tree.

Over 8,000 people in Dorset are living with dementia and with support like this the charity wants to make sure they continue living with the condition for a number of years.

There will be mince pies and coffee at the event at St Swithun's Church, in North Allington, Bridport between 10.30am and noon.

For more information on the festive activity, call Melanie on 07525 824899 or Alzheimer's Society on 0300 123 1916.

Anyone who can't make it to the event but has a diagnosis of dementia or cares for someone who does can  come and join Alzheimer's Society on alternate Mondays between 10.30am and noon at St Swithun's Church.
