Dementia Roadshow

Manor Walks Shopping Centre is set to host a Dementia Roadshow on Friday, June 21stĀ from 1pm to 4pm.

The event has been organised by Paula Truelove, a CPN (Community Psychiatric Nurse) for the Post Diagnostic Older Adult Community Treatment Team, alongside Cramlington Town Council with the goal of raising awareness and providing support for those affected by dementia.

The flyer for the roadshow was designed by Gordon Grace, who recently received a diagnosis of dementia. Gordon expressed his happiness in creating the flyer, stating it has been a positive experience for him, and he takes pride in being involved. The artwork featured on the flyer was drawn by Kenzie, a year 6 pupil at Newsham Primary School. Kenzie’s drawing, representing the impact of dementia on families, went viral on Twitter with over 100,000 views. The powerful artwork by Kenzie has also inspired Newsham Primary School to become an Alzheimer friendly school, further highlighting the importance of raising awareness for dementia.

The Dementia Roadshow is open to the public and aims to provide information, support, and resources for those affected by dementia. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about dementia and show your support for those living with the condition.
