Living well with dementia roadshow

We are working in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and will be running a Dementia Roadshow as part of Dementia Action Week 2019. The event will include the following:

  • Talk by Professor Gordon Wilcock, Founder Chairman of Alzheimer’s Society (1979-1986), Alzheimer’s Society Board of Trustees since 2015
  • The offer from post diagnostic groups
  • The support available from Alzheimer’s Society
  • Advice on relevant Benefits from Age UK
  • Support available for family and other carers
  • Opportunity to ask questions.

Being diagnosed with dementia can leave the person with dementia and their family with lots of questions about what they can expect and what they can do to plan for the future.  These roadshows give useful information about these and other matters.  Everyone is welcome.

Who the roadshows are for

The roadshows are for anyone who has recently been diagnosed with dementia and their carers or families and provides reassurance that you’re not on your own.  They are also open to professionals who support people living with dementia and their families.

Here is what some of the attendees said about past roadshows:

“Knowing that there is help and support out there when the future looks unsure”

“Being able to say I have Dementia”

“It was all very useful especially as it is all very new to our family”

“The more events like this the better. People don’t know where to go for help and don’t know what to do”
