THE Alzheimer’s Show is to be held in Trafford.

It is coming to EventCity next to the Trafford Centre on June 23 and 24.

The UK’s leading event for those living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss, the Alzheimer’s Show brings help and hope to families and carers and welcomes the public and professionals.

The Alzheimer’s Show is invaluable for anyone concerned about memory loss or dementia. Research from Saga Healthcare released last year revealed that more people fear getting dementia than cancer. A survey of 9,000 people aged over 50 showed that 43 per cent fear developing dementia, with women (often the main carers) 20 per cent more likely to be worried about developing the condition than men.

Manchester will welcome The Alzheimer’s Show as a significant opportunity to help achieve the 2020 target set by the local Dementia United partnership to make Greater Manchester the ‘best place in the world’ for its 30,000 residents living with Alzheimer’s and similar conditions.

Last May, the three Manchester universities formed a dementia research consortium aimed to reduce the dependence of people with Alzheimer’s on health and care services. The Alzheimer’s Show will help the community achieve this by bringing together a vast range of experts and exhibitors, speakers and advisers sharing their expertise on living with Alzheimer’s.

Jeremy Hughes, chief executive of the Alzheimer’s Society, says: ‘Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to be partnering with The Alzheimer’s Show for the fifth year. It’s a great opportunity to unite experts, professionals and people affected by the condition under one roof to share knowledge and provide support. We’d encourage anyone affected by dementia to join the Show to listen to talks, visit Alzheimer’s Society’s stand, have one-to-one sessions with our dementia advisers, experience taster sessions of the Society’s training, and learn from leading experts.’

Tickets booked in advance cost £15 each (£10 concession). On-the-door tickets cost £20 each (£15 concession).
