Gravesham Council will be holding a free dementia event next week.

Dementia: Ask the Experts, will aim to answer questions about the condition.

This event will look at the latest research, tools, techniques and specialist services.

From 11am to 12.30pm there will be an expert panel with specialist speakers including professor Paul Whiting, chief scientific officer at Alzheimer’s Research UK and Coreen Ayres, associate at T G Baynes Solicitors.

In the afternoon, at 1.30pm, there will also be a free screening of the film Still Alice at The Woodville.

Alice Howard, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words.

When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested.

Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.

Search Gravesham Borough Council on www.eventbrite.co.uk to book either of these events, which take place on Tuesday September 11 at The Woodville, Wrotham Road.
