NNUH Dementia Fayre set to return

The NNUH Dementia Fayre will be returning to the East Atrium and Benjamin Gooch Lecture Theatre on Monday 15 May.

For the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be hosting the free event in person with a wealth of dementia information and support for patients, carers, members of the public and healthcare workers.

The event will run from 10am to 3pm on 15 May, which marks the start of Dementia Action Week.

Liz Yaxley, NNUH Dementia Services Manager, said: “We are so pleased to be bringing back the Dementia Fayre to the hospital after a couple of years of having virtual information and advice sessions. We are looking forward to welcoming a host of experts and organisations to the hospital on the day, including our very own Dementia Support Team and clinical team. We are also looking forward to welcoming a previous patient of NNUH who will be talking about his experiences of living with young-onset Alzheimer’s disease.”
