In 2015, there will be 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2025.

As part of Dementia Awareness week Knowsley Pensioners Advocacy & Information Service (KPAIS) will be delivering two Dementia Friends awareness sessions at The Old Schoolhouse, St Johns Road in Huyton.

Thursday, 21 May - 10am to 11am
Friday, 22 May - 10am to 11am

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about the condition.
