Roadshow in Chesterfield

Have your say

A ROADSHOW designed to offer information and advice about dementia rolls into Chesterfield next week.

The Dementia Community Roadshow, run by the Alzheimer’s Society, will be at the Tesco store in Lockoford Lane on Monday and Tuesday.

People currently living with the condition, as well as friends and relatives who are worried about a loved one, are invited to drop by to ask questions and pick up information and advice.

Ian Howarth, East Midlands area manager for the charity, said: “This partnership with Tesco has enabled us to establish a roadshow that really is pioneering.

“It will help us reach out to communities, tackle stigma by raising awareness of the condition and encourage people who are worried about their memory to visit their GP.”
