Published: 29/08/2013


The roadshows offer practical, emotional and health advice aimed at anyone who has recently been diagnosed with dementia, and carers or families of people with dementia. They are intended to provide people with the information they need to understand their diagnosis and make the most of living with dementia. They will also inform people of the support that’s available and how to access this support.

Each roadshow will feature a welcome and overview from a local GP, and will include a specialist’s guide to medication and treatment. There will be talks on managing legal affairs, covering subjects such as power of attorney and advanced directives, and presentations focusing on memory techniques and tips. Experts will be on hand to answer any questions and offer practical advice and information, plus a range of stalls featuring information from local organisations will also be available, including support aimed at carers.

Attendance is free however places must be booked in advance by using one of the following methods:
