A Dementia community roadshow is coming to Fermanagh in February.

The roadshow which will be visiting Enniskillen Tesco on Friday and Saturday, February 8 and 9 will be aiming to increase awareness and understanding of the condition.

The Alzheimer's Society Roadshow offers free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition, as well as helping to promote the benefits of an early diagnosis.

Olive Johnston, Dementia Support Manager in Fermanagh, was on board the vehicle for the previous two visits and said, "We have had great results with the roadshow visits. It is clear people have been thinking about it for some time. We have had all sorts of people come on board from people worried about their memory, people newly diagnosed and long-term carers."

She said early diagnosis was vitial.
