The Fylde Coast Dementia Hub – here to help!
It is a fact that dementia is set to become ever more of a challenge for societies. Many people who are diagnosed with a dementia, or who are dealing with the diagnosis of a loved one, can feel as though they are alone.
Post-diagnostic support is very important but sadly lacking in many cases. The Fylde Coast Dementia Hub aims to fill this gap, providing practical information and support for living with, or caring for, someone with dementia. With clear and sensible information about recognising symptoms, research, getting help, managing financially, staying at home, treatment, being a carer and staying positive, this event will help those with dementia and their families to make sure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible.
