A support group to help families and friends of those suffering from dementia is about to be launched in Wisbech.
Dementia Friends is a social action movement led by Alzheimer’s Society as a strand of its work to create dementia friendly communities.
There are thought to be four million people suffering and the group’s focus is to promote support and attitude change.
By becoming a Dementia Friends you will learn what it’s like to live with dementia and understand the small ways in which we can all help.
The group is being launched by North East Cambs MP Steve Barclay at the free Dementia Friends information session on Friday December 4 from 2.30pm to 3.30pm at St Augustines Church Hall, St Augustines Road, Wisbech.
