On Friday 8th September, Dementia Action Alliance for Canterbury & Ashford hosted a Dementia: Ask the Experts Day in Westgate Hall. The event attracted people interested to know more about the condition as well to learn about locally available support services. Our Managing Director, Alison Carter, who co-chairs the Alliance with Alzheimer's Society, hosted the event. It is hoped to run more of these events as the feedback from attendees was excellent.
