The first session will take place at Braintree Community Hospital, in Chadwick Drive, on Thursday, September 20, from 11am to 2.30pm.

Sessions will helps family members, who do not have to be full-time carers, understand more about the condition as well as providing advice on ongoing care.

A free information pack is also available.
