Dementia roadshow visits Barking as part of London tour
A dementia community roadshow is visiting Barking and Dagenham this month to raise local understanding of the condition.
There are currently 1,670 people in the borough who have dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Society Roadshow offers free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition as well as helping to promote the benefits of an early diagnosis.
As part of its London tour, it will be at the Barking Tesco in Highbridge Road, on Monday 14 between 10am and 4pm.
Kate Moore, Alzheimer’s Society East Region Operations Director said: “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.
