AN EVENT is being held for people who want advice on dementia.

Representatives of the Alzheimer’s Society are holding the ‘meet your local Dementia Support Worker’ event at Hathersage Village Hall on Thursday, October 11, from 2pm until 4pm.

The event is open to people who are caring for someone with the condition and to people who are worried about their memory, or that of a loved one.

Jenny King, Alzheimer’s Society dementia support worker in the High Peak and Dales, said: “We are already in contact with many people in the Hope Valley area who are living with dementia.

“However, there are many people who are missing out on the support they deserve. We believe that it is possible to live well with the condition.”
