Everton in the Community helps people with dementia

Everton FC has set up a project that is one of a number of specialist groups and clubs aimed at helping people living with dementia.

Everton in the Community has raised funds for sessions two afternoons a week to keep people active, engaged, and supported.

While in Great Harwood in Lancashire, Ken and Val Hardacre are being helped by dementia advisor Lynne Lowe with issues such as medical queries and benefits advice.

They met Ms Lowe after Mrs Hardacre was diagnosed with the condition, as Gill Dummigan reports for North West Tonight.
