Hundreds visit Alzheimer's Society Dementia Community Roadshow Hundreds visit Alzheimer's Society Dementia Community Roadshow
Hundreds of people visited an Alzheimer's disease charity roadshow for advice and support.
The Alzheimer's Society Dementia Community Roadshow stopped at Tesco, in Oldfield Road, Sutton as part of its current tour of London.
Staff and volunteers were joined by MP Paul Burstow when it arrived last week.
People suffering from dementia or their friends and family were encouraged to drop in with no appointment necessary.
More than 100 people were given advice, while 39 people wanted a consultation in special rooms set up.
Figures show 1,586 in Sutton and Merton were diagnosed with dementia last year.
The charity has raised more than £7.5m to help improve the lives of people with dementia and support research.
Mr Burstow said: "It was good to meet up with the local Alzheimer’s Society team outside Tesco.  Being able to get information and ask questions about dementia can make a big difference."
Debbie Brennan, Alzheimer’s Society support services manager for Sutton, said: "The Roadshow is an exciting way to reach out to people across London, tackling stigma and raising awareness of the condition.
"If you are worried about your memory, we would encourage you to contact your GP or get in touch with Alzheimer’s Society to find out more about the support available."

  3. Sorry about this but I only noticed it the other day and thought it may well help many people. I don't know if its been widely publicised, but I thought it was worth trying to push it from here.
