Alzheimer’s Society Roadshow visits Dursley

Alzheimer’s Society Roadshow visits Dursley

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 10:00

People of Dursley, and the surrounding area, will have the opportunity to put their questions to experts and find out more about dementia later this month as the Alzheimer's Society Roadshow rolls into town.

The charity's mobile information service will be stopping off at the market place in Dursley on Thursday 22 March from 10am to 4pm. It aims to increase local awareness of the condition which is estimated to affect more than 8,500 people in Gloucestershire. A team of experts will offer free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition, as well as helping to promote the benefits of diagnosis.

People currently living with dementia or those concerned for loved ones with memory problems are welcome to visit the team. No appointment is needed.

Since its launch in 2011, the Roadshow has reached more than 200,000 people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and provided valuable support and information.

Lee Hawthorne, Alzheimer's Society Services Manager for Gloucestershire said: "Dementia is one of the biggest health and social care challenges of our generation. Yet it continues to be a condition surrounded by stigma. This can mean that people who are worried about dementia, or simply want to find out more, may not know where to turn."

"Our Dementia Community Roadshow offers an opportunity for those people to get the information and support they need. We're here to provide people with information about where to get help and encourage those with concerns about their memory to visit their GP."

People can find out when the Dementia Community Roadshow will be visiting their local area by visiting www.alzheimers.org.uk/roadshow.

To keep up to date with what Alzheimer's Society is doing in your area, follow the local Twitter account @AlzSocSWEngland or visit the Facebook page 'Alzheimer's Society South West'.

If you are unable to visit the roadshow but would like to find out more about dementia, call the national dementia helpline on 0300 222 11 22 or visit alzheimers.org.uk.

Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes and too many facing it alone. Alzheimer's Society is urging everyone to unite against dementia. Unite now at alzheimers.org.uk.
