Around 90,000 people in Scotland today are living with dementia and this number is forecast to increase over the next decade.  Early diagnosis of the condition is crucial and can help prolong the quality of life of people with dementia. 
Age Scotland’s Early Stage Dementia Project is funded by the Life Changes Trust to support the charity in raising awareness of early stage dementia and the signs and symptoms of the condition.  Through the project we will:
Deliver dementia awareness training, including for the charity’s staff and 1,000 member groups
Provide information and advice resources, ensuring they are suitable for people with dementia, their carers and relatives  
Improve public knowledge around early stage dementia, including how healthy living can reduce your risk of developing dementia.
We hope you will find the information on our website helpful and if you have any questions about the project you can contact the team on ESDTeam@agescotland.org.uk or call 0333 32 32 400.
