TOUGH questions on a life-changing illness were answered when a roadshow parked up.
The Alzheimer’s Society’s dementia community roadshow pulled up at Tesco’s in Shripney Road.
The event gave residents the chance to put their questions to the experts and find out a little more about the condition.
Mavis Goldstone said: “I just noticed the bright blue van parked up and wondered what it was about so came for a closer look.
“My mother is suffering with dementia at the moment and I have been able to get some real practical advice.
“The sort of things you don’t always feel you can ask at a hospital or doctor’s appointment,” added the 50-year-old.
As well as providing free information and advice, the roadshow also helped to promote the importance of early diagnosis.
Michael Kissman, community director at Tesco’s, said: “With stores all over Sussex, we’re extremely proud to help Alzheimer’s Society raise awareness of dementia.
“The roadshow is part of the legacy from our charity of the year partnership with the society and we hope it contributes to building a better future for people with dementia.”
