Alzheimer’s Society Fenland to stage event at March Library as part of Dementia Awareness Week

Alzheimer’s Society Fenland is holding an awareness event next Tuesday to encourage people to talk about dementia.

The event at March Library coincides with Dementia Awareness Week, which runs from May 20-26.

From 10am-1pm people can obtain information and talk to professionals and find out what support is available from the charity’s Fenland team.

Tina Kierman, locality manager for Cambridgeshire, said: “We need to tackle the misunderstanding surrounding dementia if we are to ensure people with dementia are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

“This event is a great opportunity to spend some time, whether you have five minutes or half an hour, to learn a bit more about dementia.”
