Waveney MP Peter Aldous will be a special guest at Lilac Lodge care home, in Oulton Broad next Friday, March 31 to launch a new monthly drop-in for people living with dementia and their carers.
There will be presentations by Sam Curry, from Age UK, Susan Bergin from the Forget Me Not team at Alzheimer's Research UK and representatives from the Synergy Café, in Lowestoft and the local Memory Club.
They will talk about local support available to families touched by dementia.
The event, from 10.30am to noon, will be free and there will be cake, bric-a-brac and book stalls to raise funds for Alzheimer's Society and St Margaret's Church.
Zena Stotter, manager at the Kingsley Healthcare run home, said: 'The number of people caring at home for family members living with dementia is increasing year on year.
