There’s a tea and talk invitation being issued by the Alzheimer’s Society in Stevenage during Dementia Awareness Week, which begins on Monday.
The midweek event at the community arts pavilion on the town’s Roaring Meg retail park is billed as a chance to confront dementia, with charity staff and volunteers providing information and giving tips about how to live well with the condition.
The free event runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm next Wednesday, May 18, and all are welcome.
The charity’s Gayl Staines said: “We’d love to see as many people as possible join us.
“By openly talking about dementia we hope to tackle myths and misunderstandings about the condition and spread the message that life doesn’t end when dementia begins.

“The sooner you face up to dementia by coming to us for information and support, the sooner you can get the right treatment and advice to tackle it.”
