A series of information events that showcase the new support service for people living with the effects of dementia are taking place across North Yorkshire over the coming weeks.

The events are being run by Dementia Forward, and anyone whose lives have been affected by dementia, their families and carers as well as health and social care professionals are being encouraged to come along to find out about the free support and advice available.

County Councillor Caroline Dickinson, Executive Member for Public Health, Prevention and Supported Housing, said:

Dementia Forward is a local that helps people living with dementia and their family, friends or carers to find out about the choices available to them following the diagnosis.

They provide Information, advice and support through a wide range of local services, including a North Yorkshire Helpline; home visits from a trained dementia support advisor; signposting to other sources of help; education programmes and a range of wellbeing and social activities. The service is available to anyone living in North Yorkshire who is affected by dementia, from pre-diagnosis to end of life.



Jill Quinn, Chief Executive of Dementia Forward, said:

The information events are an informal and friendly way for people to meet and get to know our teams of dementia support experts, and find out more about the services we are delivering.
