The Fylde Coast Dementia Hub Talks: 2020

**Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the hub is postponed until further notice.**​

Each monthly Fylde Coast Dementia Hub will host a short talk on a topic that may be of interest to those living with dementia, their friends and families, and to people who have an interest in dementia.
