People affected by dementia received free advice at an Alzheimer’s Society roadshow.
The event in Islington Green on October 16 was aimed at raising awareness of the disease and giving people the opportunity to pick up free information and talk to trained dementia support workers.
On a cold and wet day, 48 people stopped to talk about their concerns for their own memory or about that of a loved one.
Cllr Janet Burgess, Islington Council’s executive member for health and wellbeing, said: “Dementia is a very frightening condition, not only for the person directly affected but for their friends and family as well.
“Talking about it is really important and I am grateful to the Alzheimer’s Society for holding the roadshow in Islington and speaking to a great many people.
