Angela said “I am delighted to be part of The Alzheimer’s Show once again this year. I was genuinely thrilled to see so many people at Olympia last year. Proof that people are keen to learn more about the illness and discover ways of being supportive to those who have a dementia and their carers. The show offered a staggering amount of information, personal experiences and practical help all woven through with a fun day out. Everything you ever wanted or needed to know about dementia – all under one roof”.
