"Here at Knebworth, we understand how difficult it can be to adapt to the challenges that come with a dementia diagnosis," said Daniel Grab, home manager at Knebworth.

"This event will provide local people with insight and practical advice to better understand and prepare for the different stages of the condition while providing an opportunity to connect with others in a similar position.

"We’re thrilled to be welcoming Barbara Stephens to help those in the local community learn more about what dementia might mean for a loved one, and we’d encourage those interested to book their space to avoid missing out."
