Visitors to this year's National Eisteddfod of Wales will have the opportunity to put their questions to the experts and find out a little more about dementia and the work of Alzheimer's Society.
National Eisteddfod of WalesFrom Tuesday 5 to Wednesday 6 August, Alzheimer's Society staff and volunteers will be chatting to visitors at the Eisteddfod in Llanelli as the charity aims to increase public awareness and understanding of the condition which affects over 45,500 people in Wales. Free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition will be on offer, as well as details about volunteering opportunities and services to support people living with dementia in the local area.
Alzheimer's Society will be located at the Third Sector Carmarthenshire stall, 1106-1109 on the Maes.
Cheryl James, Alzheimer's Society Operations Manager said:
'Dementia is one of the biggest health and social care challenges of our generation. Yet it continues to be a condition blighted with stigma and lack of understanding. This can mean that people who are worried about dementia in some way, or simply want to find out more may not know where to turn.
'This is the perfect way to get information and support out to the people who need it. We're particularly excited to be attending this year's National Eisteddfod of Wales so we can reach out to people who may not normally access our services or be in a position to get advice.'
