Francine Summers, home manager at Priors House, said: “As we age, we all get a little more forgetful, whether it’s forgetting a name, or walking into a room and having no idea what we went there for.

“In this special session, with our dementia expert Sue, we’ll be discussing normal signs of ageing and sharing our knowledge around how this differs from a more serious condition such as dementia.
