A pioneering roadshow will be providing more information on dementia when it drops into Lynn later this week.

The Alzheimer’s Society roadshow will be offering advice on the condition and promoting the benefits of an early diagnosis when it stops by Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital from 10am on Thursday. There are currently 2,254 people in West Norfolk with dementia, and this number is rising.

The society’s east region operations director Kate Moore said: “The dementia community roadshow helps us to reach out to local communities and people who may not know where to turn for help. Getting a diagnosis is the first step in unlocking the support and potential treatments that are available.

“Receiving an early diagnosis enables people to get access to support when they need it and gives them the opportunity to plan for the future.

“We’re here to provide people with information about where to get help.”
