Alzheimer's Society hopes with 'the right support people can live well with the condition'
Expert help and advice on dementia will be on offer in the borough on Thursday, March 3.
Alzheimer’s Society dementia advisors will be on hand from 10am to 3pm at Market Square, offering help and advice on dementia, which affects more than 4,000 people in Bromley.
The society says dementia is the biggest health and social care challenge facing London today and that it is aiming to ensure that across London there is a good level of dementia care.
Sarah Colyer, operations manager for Alzheimer’s Society in South East London, said: “Being diagnosed with dementia can be a daunting and overwhelming experience and it can also be a difficult time for carers. I would encourage anyone who is looking for more information about dementia to stop by the community roadshow bus and speak to our advisers.
“With the right support people can live well with the condition.”
