Brighton residents explore dementia

People in Brighton will have the opportunity to put their questions to the experts and find out a little more about dementia at the end of July as the Alzheimer's Society Dementia Community Roadshow comes to town.

The pioneering national tour will be stopping off at The Promenade, next to The Meeting Place Cafe, from Tuesday 29 July to Wednesday 30 July as it aims to increase local awareness and understanding of the condition which affects 3,032 people in Brighton and Hove.

It is open to people currently living with dementia, who are worried about a friend or relative's memory or who just have questions about the condition. No appointment is needed.

Having launched in 2011, the Roadshow has already made a big difference to the lives of people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The current tour of the coast is also due to visit, among other places, Whitstable and Folkestone.

"With stores all over the East Midlands, we're extremely proud to help Alzheimer's Society raise awareness of dementia. The Roadshow is part of the legacy from our Charity of the Year partnership with the society and we hope that it contributes to building a better future for people with dementia."

– Michael Kissman, Community Director at Tesco
