Age Scotland’s Early Stage Dementia Project is funded by the Life Changes Trust to support the charity in developing dementia awareness training for our staff, member groups, volunteers and partners. The Project will work to improve our information and advice resources, ensuring they are suitable for people with dementia, their carers and relatives. We also offer early stage dementia training for workplaces. You can download an overview of the workplace training here.
We also aim to improve public knowledge on how health can have a significant impact on both preventing dementia and slowing the onset for those living with the condition. By encouraging individuals to seek early diagnosis, promoting interventions and improving society’s perceptions, the Project Team will support older people to live well with dementia for as long as possible and to make the most of their lives.
