Show Notes

Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!

In this episode, The Future for Dementia, our hosts Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw are joined by Tim Baverstock from the Alzheimer’s Society to discuss the latest dementia developments, why the Alzheimer’s Society feel that 2024 is a pivotal year for supporting people with dementia and why being diagnosed with the condition is hugely important in terms of receiving effective support.

The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder, Dr. Peter Bagshaw and Dr. Kate Staveley. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite expert guests to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.

All episodes of SEW are now available to listen to free through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Podcasts, Somerset Emotional Wellbeing or wherever you get your podcasts!
