Prospective MP Ben Howlett was joined by Dr Sarah Wollaston, previous chair of the Health Select Committee in Parliament, to mark the start of Dementia Awareness Week in Bath.
They visited the Bath & North East Somerset Dementia Action Alliance’s stall on Union Street.
After attending the event, Dr Sarah Wollaston said: “It was great to be here in Bath and witness the extraordinarily work of Bath & North East Somerset Dementia Action Alliance.
“Ben has long campaigned on improving support given to those struggling with dementia during his time in Parliament given his personal experience and has been a champion of these causes.
Special thanks goes to Sarah Williams for her tireless work in promoting dementia awareness in Bath. It was great to meet her and her team.
Ben commented: “Two of my grandparents suffered with dementia so I understand first-hand the effect it has on those who suffer as well as their loved ones.
“I want to urge as many people as possible to become Dementia Friends and find out a bit more about supporting those with dementia during Dementia Awareness Week. Dementia Action Alliance’s stall will be on Union Street until Friday this week between 9am and 4pm.”
