Upcoming local Dementia events:

1) The Dementia Community Roadshow is coming to East Surrey Hospital on Wednesday 4th May 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm.

The Roadshow has been touring the UK for the past four years, providing essential support, information and advice about dementia to members of the public. It is not a collection or fundraising event, rather an opportunity for members of the public to receive free, tailored, and confidential advice. Staff and volunteers from Alzheimer’s Society will be available to talk to people about dementia whether they know someone living with dementia or are worried about memory, or have a personal or professional interested in dementia. They will have a range of information and resources available for people about dementia as well as local services and will be able to offer private 1:1 sessions or take referral details on the day. For more information, go to alzheimers.org.uk/roadshow or call the National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 1122 for advice and support.

2) The Alzheimer’s Society are also running a New Dementia Café at the Douglas Brunton Centre, Caterham starting on Thursday 12 May 3pm-5pm. The cost is £2 per person. For more information call 01932 855582 or email surrey@alzheimers.org.uk
