La Cala de Mijas Lions have joined Age Care and Medicare to launch an Alzheimer's and dementia support group.
The first meeting, to be held in English, will be on 3 June from 11.30am to 2pm at the Calahonda International Baptist Church.
The organisers say that the Costa del Sol is an area where there is little support for the carers of people who have contracted this debilitating disease.
The first meeting will be a social get-together to explore what people want out of the new group, say the organisers. Free coffee and cakes will be provided.
Anyone requiring more information is invited to call 635407255 or 629893016.
