How Good Is Your Memory?
Currently less than half of people with dementia in Blackpool receive a formal diagnosis. So, in partnership with Empowerment, Age UK Blackpool, and Carers Trust, we launched the ‘How Good is Your Memory?’ campaign to raise awareness across the town.
It is aimed at encouraging anyone over the age of 50 who is concerned to undertake free memory screening. The ultimate aim is to ensure people receive an early diagnosis of dementia. An early diagnosis provides the best opportunity to prepare and plan for the future, as well as receive any treatment that may be possible.
