For the fourth year running, Blackpool Victoria Hospital will be hosting a Dementia Action Day on Friday, May 25.
St Annes’ Peter Lyttle, who lives with vascular dementia and has told his story to both national press and TV, will be opening the day and talking about his dementia journey.
Visitors can get up to date information from specialists at dementia-related stalls and there will be displays from JLC Dance and the chance to win fabulous prizes with the Dementia Day Raffle which raises money for Blue Skies Hospitals Fund’s dementia Peace of Mind appeal.
Patient Experience Lead, Andrew Heath, said: “We are very pleased to be able to host this special day again to raise awareness and support those living with dementia and their families.
“This year we will also be visited by local ice cream parlour, Notarianni’s, who will be selling their ice cream on Thursday, May 24, to help boost funds for our Peace of Mind Appeal.
“We welcome everyone to come and join us.”
For anyone who would like to get more information about dementia, the day gives an ideal opportunity to learn more and help support dementia patients in the Trust by raising money.
Dementia Action Day is part of Dementia Action Week which runs 21-25 May.
