Waveney MP Peter Aldous attended the first of a new monthly drop-in event at Lilac Lodge care home, in Oulton Broad, intended to support people living with dementia and their carers.
He welcomed the new initiative at the Kingsley Healthcare run home and highlighted the importance of different support groups in the town connecting to make the most of the help available.
As well as people living with dementia and carers, the event was also attended by a number of people from support groups and charities.
One pensioner who attended highlighted the difficulty of coping with a partner living with dementia and only getting four hours of respite a week.
Praising the new drop-in, she said she would spread the word to others ahead of next month's event.
