Dementia roadshow visits Tower Hamlets as part of London tour

A dementia community roadshow is visiting Tower Hamlets next week to raise local understanding of the condition.

There are currently 1,120 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 Bromley-by-Bow Tesco on Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 between 10am and 4pm before travelling east towards Barking.

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.

“We’re here to provide people with information about where to get help and encourage those with concerns about their memory to visit their GP.”
