An estimated 90,000 people in Scotland are living with dementia. A diagnosis of dementia changes the lives of not only a person with dementia, but also their family and friends.
Dementia Awareness Week 2018 focuses on making sure nobody faces dementia alone.
It’s vital that people living with dementia feel recognised, valued and supported in their local communities. Alzheimer Scotland is committed to providing a wide-range of dementia-specific support in the heart of local communities.
Events will be taking place across the country, including the Scottish Borders, during the week. There will be local information events, open days and “tea and blether” sessions,
You can find out what’s happening in the Scottish Borders and elsewhere on the Dementia Awareness Week website.
