Library to host information stand for dementia

by Tom Martin (May 2022)

ALZHEIMER’S Society Sefton will hold an information stand at Formby Library as part of Dementia Action Week (16-22 May).

The staffed stand will be at Formby Library, on Duke Street, on Wednesday, May 18 from 10am to 2pm.

If you are worried about your memory, have questions about dementia or simply want to find out more about risk factors, staff will be there to help.

If you care for someone with this condition, staff will also be on hand to give support and information. There is no need to book, just pop along on the day.

With diagnosis rates across the UK at a five-year low, Alzheimer’s Society says tens of thousands of people are now living with undiagnosed dementia, meaning they are missing out on the vital care and support a diagnosis can bring.

Barry Lyon, Service manager for Sefton Alzheimer’s Society said: “We have organised this information stand to give people the opportunity to find out more about what local services are available and to chat with staff about any concerns you may have.

“There are many misconceptions about dementia so it’s important to get the right information. There are also many things you can do to reduce your risk.”

There are around 5,000 people living with dementia in Sefton. To find out more, come along to our information stand, call 01704 539967 or email seftonoffice@alzheimers.org.uk
