Cllr John Pritchard, lead member for adult social care, said: “For those living with dementia, and their families, the time after diagnosis can feel very lonely and isolating. This event on October 12 aims to let everyone know that there is a huge amount of information and, more importantly, support available and you don’t have to go through this alone.”
The event is free, but if you would like to come along please let us know by booking a ticket on Eventbrite.
This event also forms part of a week of celebration on the first anniversary of the opening of the Wellbeing Hub. You can find out more about the Wellbeing Hub in this blog article.
