Dementia is caused when parts of the brain stop working properly. There is no cure for the condition, which gets more common with age.

There have been a number of public meetings held all over Norfolk as part of the consultation. After Wednesday's event in Yarmouth there will be one more public meeting at The Assembly Rooms, Theatre Street, Norwich, NR2 1RQ on February 10 from 4pm to 7pm.
