Dementia can be a difficult subject to talk about, you might be worried that you, or someone close to you may have dementia. We are all guilty of burying our heads in the sand from time to time. But if you are seriously concerned and the problem continues then it is important to talk to someone to talk about it. Knowing what you are dealing with and taking control of the situation can help you get on with your life.
Dementia Awareness Week (18-24 May 2014) is all about not bottling up and learning to open up and getting help for you and your loved ones. Bromley Council funds and works closely with experts in the field to help improve the care and experience of those who are living with dementia and is using Dementia Awareness Week to highlight the range of services and support within the Bromley Borough and surrounding areas.
Early diagnosis is important in helping people plan for the future and understand the action that they are able to take to maintain their health and wellbeing. Speaking to your GP is the first step to helping you or your loved ones.
There are a few open afternoons coming up within the Bromley Borough for you to come along to.
