Information sessions to help people with early stage dementia and people who care for someone with dementia will start in Dursley next month.
The free sessions are being provided by Managing Memory Together, which is part of ²gether NHS Foundation Trust.
Kathy Holmes, of the Managing Memory service, said: “These sessions will cover a wide range of topics to help anyone who cares for someone with dementia or anyone who has early stage dementia learn more about the condition.
“Dementia can be a worrying prospect, both for carers and those with the condition, but we will help to explain the condition and what can be done to help people with dementia to live well and get the most out of life.
“Not only are the sessions educational and supportive, they also provide an opportunity to meet with other people in a similar situation, which helps you to realise that you are not alone.
“I would encourage anyone who has a loved one with dementia or who has early stage dementia themselves to come along.”
The sessions are being held on Wednesday mornings from 10.30am until 12.30pm at the Tyndale Centre, in Slade Road, starting from March 12.
Sessions also run in other parts of the county, including Cheltenham, Bishops Cleeve, Coleford, Stroud, and Cirencester.
