Becoming a Dementia Friend

Dementia Friends Scotland is an Alzheimer Scotland initiative to raise awareness of dementia and reduce the stigma about this condition.  Nicki arranged for a speaker to come from Alzheimer Scotland to come and talk at St.Cuthbert’s.  Anne McWhinnie told us about the things we could do to help people living with dementia and how they could still be a valued part of their local community. It was an informative and fun session and many of us came away having increased our knowledge of dementia and a better insight about how we could help people living with this illness. https://www.alzscot.org/our-work/dementia-friendly-communities/dementia-friends-scotland
