Two opportunities will roll into Norfolk for people to put their dementia questions to the experts.
With more than 14,000 people living with the condition across the county and many facing it alone without adequate support, the Alzheimer’s Society is inviting people to visit their community roadshow to find out more.
The experts 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.
The roadshow will park up at Hay Hill, Norwich, on Tuesday, April, 17 from 10am to 4pm.
And then on New Conduit Street (outside Nationwide), in King’s Lynn, on Wednesday, April 18, from 10am to 4pm.
The roadshow is open to those currently living with dementia, anyone worried about a friend or relative’s memory or who just have questions about the condition. No appointment is needed.
Debbie Foster, Alzheimer’s Society operations manager for Norfolk and Suffolk, said: “Dementia is now the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes. We want everyone affected by dementia to know that whoever you are, whatever you are going through, you can turn to Alzheimer’s Society for support, help and advice.
“Our community roadshow offers an opportunity for people to get the information and support they need. 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.”
