HELP and advice on coping with dementia was offered at an open day aimed at raising awareness about the condition.

Held at the St Mary’s Hospital conference centre, the Dementia Awareness Day was organised by the IW NHS Trust’s memory service.

Staff were on hand to offer advice on coping with the symptoms of dementia, such as memory loss or communication problems.

Service manager Sian Bayer said: "There was information about nature therapy in dementia and the importance of bringing nature into environments, where people with dementia are cared for.

"Some residential homes have been involved with this project."

Dementia Awareness Days are held every three months.
