Dementia awareness event 2016
The Hull Dementia Collaborative, made up of health, social care and voluntary organisations from across Hull, plus people with dementia and their carers, hosted an awareness raising event for the general public during Dementia Awareness Week.
The event took take place on the Lower Deck at Princes Quay on Wednesday 18 May 2016 and provided members of the public with the opportunity to learn about the services available for people with dementia and their carers, and also shared some of the progress which the Hull Dementia Collaborative has made over the past year. Dr Hari Symes, local GP and Primary Care Lead for Dementia said:
“Dementia is not a normal part of ageing; it occurs when the brain is affected by a disease, and so it can be a frightening diagnosis with a huge impact on families and carers. It is important that we support those affected by dementia as much as we can.”
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped to make the event a success.
