Dementia Awareness week - Alzheimer’s Society community roadshow

Written by Sara Deakin, practice development matron for older people and dementia.

This week is dementia awareness week and we have a variety of activities planned across both sites at NUH to help raise awareness about dementia. It is our aim that through raising staff and public awareness we can continue to work together to help improve the lives of people with dementia, as well as their families and carers
This year we are privileged to welcome the Alzheimer’s Society community roadshow to the trust. The roadshow has been touring the UK for the past four years, providing essential support, information and advice about dementia to members of the public.

It is not a collection or fundraising event, rather an opportunity for members of the public to receive free, tailored, and confidential advice.

Today the roadshow is located outside the treatment centre at QMC between 10am and 4pm, and on Thursday 19 May the roadshow will be located outside main out-patients at City hospital, also between 10am and 4pm.

Everyone is welcome to attend the roadshow. Visitors and carers can receive vital support, and staff can develop their knowledge about dementia.

No appointment is needed. Just pop along for a chat or just to pick up a leaflet.

Don’t be on your own. We want to help and support as many people as we can.
