HONITON: The seaside comes to High Street for Alzheimer’s Society

Wednesday, 21 May 2014

The forecourt outside St Paul’s Church will be turned into a seaside scene this week, when Devon Alzheimer’s Society holds a beach-themed event to mark Dementia Awareness Week. Members of the society will be running an information stall outside the church on Thursday (May 22nd), with a sandpit and a range of other attractions around the theme of the seaside. It is hoped that visitors to the town will take up the opportunity to learn more about dementia and the work of the society. Jo Taswell, services manager for the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Dementia has replaced cancer as the health condition people fear most. “It is therefore no surprise that many people feel confused or even ashamed to talk about it. “We all bury our heads in the sand from time to time but it is important to seek help – the sooner you know what you are dealing with, the sooner you can get on with your life and feel in control again. “This event is a great opportunity to find out more about how Alzheimer’s Society can help people suffering with dementia.”
