Dementia Community Roadshow

Shropshire NewsroomLast Friday Shropshire Newsroom announced a series of Dementia Community Roadshows across the county on several days this week. Full details can be found here.
The roadshows, which are being organised by Shropshire’s Alzheimer’s Society, aim to raise awareness of dementia in  local communities, to support people to get a diagnosis and to help them gain access to help and support, including health and financial benefits.
The nearest venue to Hodnet is in Market Drayton on Wednesday, 18 February from 10.00am to 4.00pm in Morrisons, Maer Lane.
The event will be hosted by local support workers and volunteers who will be on hand to signpost people with dementia and their carers to essential local services, and bring people concerned about their memory, or that of a loved one, a step closer to achieving a diagnosis.
For more information about the event, contact the Alzheimer’s Society in Shropshire on 01743 341800.
