The Dementia Wellbeing Service are doing a roadshow in Somerset starting in February.

The new Somerset Dementia Wellbeing Service is a collaboration between dementia services who are working together to improve diagnosis, enhance support in the community, and provide an excellent, consistent service for people with dementia and their carers in Somerset.

This spring, to launch the new service, we are running a series of roadshows across the county to showcase support options available to people with dementia and their carers, and give people an opportunity to experience a free mobile dementia simulator.

Virtual Dementia Tour (training) will be offered at each location, with two training sessions a day. Each session has 12 spaces. Eventbrite booking for the virtual dementia tour.
