Alzheimer Scotland is the leading dementia organisation in Scotland, with around 90,000 individual’s in Scotland living with dementia.
This year’s theme for Dementia Awareness Week is to help people understand why friendship and kindness are even more important for those with Dementia. We hope to raise awareness of the condition across Leith, Kirkliston, Coates, Murraryfield, improving the care received and finding a cure that is so urgently needed.
Where possible, individuals are encouraged help others find out about local services available to them, talk about when to expect with a diagnosis and get involved with fundraising for Alzheimer Scotland.
