A community roadshow will roll into Suffolk, with people being given the chance to put their dementia questions to the experts.
To increase awareness and understanding of the condition – which affects more than 11,700 people across the county – the Alzheimer's Society is inviting people to visit their community roadshow.
The roadshow will be held outside Beales department store in London Road North, Lowestoft on Tuesday, September 12 from 10am to 4pm.
It will also take place at Abbeycroft Leisure Centre in Bury St Edmunds on Friday, September 15 from 10am to 4pm and at the Grand Henham Steam Rally on Saturday, September 16 from 10am to 4pm.
The roadshow is open to people currently living with dementia, anyone worried about a friend or relative's memory or who just have questions about the condition. No appointment is needed.
