Sinn Féin MLA John O' Dowd has given his backing to the Alzheimer's Society's 'Training for Informal Carers' programme which is being rolled out across the region and is free.

Mr O' Dowd attended the Alzheimer's road show in Banbridge and speaking afterwards said;

"I want to commend the Alzheimer's Society on their work and support for people with dementia but also their families who care for them.

"It is important support is given to informal carers who can be overcome by the challenges they face in caring for loved ones with dementia. The support given by the Alzheimer's Society is practical and shows that carers are not on their own.

"The workshops are free and can be booked by phoning 02890387480 or by emailing NICaregiver.Training@alzheimers.org.uk
