A CARE support service is set to launch workshops to help friends, family and carers of people with dementia.

Home Instead Senior Care, based in Frinton, has created the sessions to teach people more about the condition and how to handle it.

They will be launched during dementia awareness week, which runs from May 19-25.

Sessions will be held in Frinton at Soken House and Frinton Free Church, as well as Imperial House in Clacton.

Home Instead Senior Care boss Jean Allen said: “We have been running similar workshops for caregivers, but we realised the information would be hugely helpful to the family of friends of dementia sufferers too."
