Local Dementia Hubs

The Blackburn with Darwen Dementia Action Alliance is developing regular Dementia Hubs.  The hubs aim to provide a range of information in one place to people living with dementia and their carers and families.  Organisations which provide support to people with dementia will be available to provide advice, guidance and support, including Age UK, Carers Service, Alzheimers Society and Your Support, Your Choice.  The venue is informal and people can chat over a brew!

Forthcoming dates are 12th October, 14th December 2017 and 8th Feb 2018, all 1-3pm at  Your Support, Your Choice, Town Hall Street, Blackburn.  For more information contact Age UK on 01254 266620 or Your Support, Your Choice on 01254 292620
