    YOU CAN LIVE WELL WITH DEMENTIA WITH THE RIGHT SUPPORT SAYS THE ALZHEIMER’S SHOW’S ORGANISERS

     

    According to new research by Alzheimer’s Society, 56% of people delay seeking help over concerns about memory loss. Some 62% admitted they felt that a diagnosis of dementia would mean their life was over. However, The Alzheimer’s Show’s organisers believe it is possible to live well with dementia, provided those affected gain access to the right support and information.
