Maidstone and the Weald MP Helen Grant paid tribute to the work of Alzheimer's Society as she helped launch the opening of their newly extended Maidstone office.

The new main lounge doubles the space available at the Dairy Court premises in Loose. This will allow the charity to provide a wider range of services, more frequently, to many more people with Alzheimer's in and around Maidstone.

When speaking at the event, Helen said: 'It is a pleasure to be here today to open this new facility. I can see what a difference this will make and I want to take this opportunity to thank the charity, its workers and volunteers for all of the care, support and attention you give.'

One regular Thursday visitor said 'Thursday is the best day of my week. The company is great, everyone is so friendly and understanding of my problem.'

Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity and helps to provide information and practical and emotional support to help people live well with dementia.

The charity also invests heavily into research to help defeat the condition. Indeed by 2017 it aims to spend at least £10 million a year on new research projects that will make a real difference to people's lives.
