David Ash, Alzheimer’s Society’s area Manager for the West Midlands said” This Roadshow helps us to reach out to local communities as well as reach people who may not know where to turn to for help. Getting a diagnosis is the first step in unlocking the support and potentential treatments that are available. Receiving an early diagnosis enables people to get access to support when they need it and gives them the opportunity to plan for the future”
