Event on dementia awareness

Have your say

SUNDERLAND Carers Centre is holding an event about dementia.

The Memory Event will be held at Bethany Centre, Houghton, on Thursday, from 1pm onwards.

It will provide information on how to keep the mind healthy and active and will also focus on dementia awareness.

The aim is to raise awareness, give advice and offer support whilst also having fun and helping people to enjoy themselves.

Action on Dementia and Sunderland Carers’ Centre will be there to offer support to carers and those worried about the condition and give them information and advice.

Telecare will also be there demonstrating their aids, and Living History North East will be re-living the past and giving people the chance to have their old photographs recorded in history.

NHS South of Tyne and Wear will give tips on healthy eating and B Active N B Fit will demonstrate keep fit tips for the over 50s.

Anyone is welcome. For more information contact Gemma Carrick at Gentoo on 525 5000.
