People affected by dementia will be able to receive free advice and information about how to cope with the condition. 

On June 15, experts from Alzheimer’s Society will be on hand in Watford to meet with sufferers of the disease at their Community Roadshow.

The session will run from 10am to 4pm at The Parade, High Street, Watford.

Research from the charity suggests that more than 900 people are living with the condition in the town and the roadshow will offer those concerned an opportunity to have questions answered and to learn the benefits on an early diagnosis.

No appointment is necessary.

Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “One of my commitments to you as Mayor is to make Watford a Dementia Friendly Town. 

“The condition is becoming more and more prominent and it’s really important that we support people who have dementia and their carers too. It’s great to be able to support the Alzheimer’s Society Roadshow to help raise awareness of this condition. 

“Please come along and speak to our colleagues from Alzheimer’s Society who will be giving free expert advice, support and information to anyone who needs it.”

Sally Marlow, Alzheimer’s Society operations manager for Hertfordshire, said: “Dementia is now the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes. 

“We want everyone affected by dementia to know that whoever you are, whatever you are going through, you can turn to Alzheimer’s Society for support, help and advice. Our Community Roadshow offers an opportunity for people to get the information and support they need.”
