The event, held at the Sprowston Diamond Centre, outlined the importance of understanding the condition to ensure people suffering with it feel included.

It was part of the town's efforts to become a Dementia Friendly Community.

A spokesman for the event said: 'Attendees discovered that to be a Dementia Friendly Community people need to be aware of, and understand, dementia so people with dementia will feel included and involved, and have choice and control over their day to day lives.'

Sprowston DFC is running information sessions for anyone wanting to know more about the condition. The free session takes place at the Diamond Centre on Thursday, November 2 at 2pm or 6pm.
