Help for people living with dementia
This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.
The roadshows are 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 South Gloucestershire GP, and include a psychiatrist’s guide to medication and treatment, plus tips and techniques from memory nurses. There will be presentations focussing on mental capacity and a panel of experts to answer questions and offer practical advice and information. A local person affected by dementia will be sharing their personal experiences and a range of stalls featuring information from local organisations will also be available.
This Thornbury roadshow will additionally feature representatives from the Thornbury Memory Café, plus a speech and language therapist.
