PORTSMOUTH’S Alzheimer’s Society is to host a ‘memory day’ event as part of national dementia awareness week.
Anyone who is worried about their memory, or that of someone else, is invited to find out what support is available in Portsmouth.
Representatives from the Alzheimer’s Society and other relevant providers in the city will answer questions and highlight local services and people will be able to talk to consultants and health care and memory professionals.
During the awareness week, which runs from July 3 to 9, the Alzheimer’s Society also wants Portsmouth people to help improve services by telling them what support is needed.
Carol Elliott from the Portsmouth branch of the Alzheimer’s Society said: ‘This is intended to be a fun day which will get people talking. We hope many people will come along and join us.’
The event is on Monday, July 4, at The John Pounds Centre, Queen Street, Portsmouth from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
