As part of this week of raising awareness of dementia, The Alzheimer’s Society are holding an event at the Harpur Suite in Bedford on Wednesday 20th May, between 9.30am & 1.30pm. There will be a small exhibition of the work that carers and people with dementia have completed to display their journey with dementia and what dementia means to them. There will also be a café and an area where people can talk in private regarding any dementia support issues/concerns.
Throughout Dementia Awareness Week, the Society is encouraging it’s supporters to Do Something New and share & tag their efforts on social media using the hashtag #DoSomethingNew or #DAW2015.
