Carers Trust / Alzheimer’s Society information event

  • 2 March 2021, 11am

Come and hear Pauline Murphy from Alzheimer’s Society at our Information on Services event.

Alzheimer’s Society works continuously to raise awareness about all types of dementia and the support it provides at a local and national level. Alzheimer’s Society is here for anyone affected by any form of dementia.  It provides information, and practical and emotional support to help people affected by dementia to live well.

Please register with Michelle Moult, our Outreach and Information Support Worker,  and a link to Zoom will be forwarded to you. Help is available on how to use Zoom, so please don’t be afraid to try it for the first time.
