While many employers wish to do more to support employees affected by dementia, people are still more willing to tell their friends and family about their dementia rather than their employers. This shows problems of stigma around dementia in the workplace remain. The Early Stage Dementia Project will work to address this through: 
Delivering dementia awareness training for workplaces ensuring employers and colleagues can identify the signs and symptoms of dementia
Providing information for business on how to provide better support for customers who have dementia
Promoting better support for employees with dementia, employees with caring responsibilities, and help for employers in addressing these issues.

Our project identified that dementia is a growing workplace issue with more people being diagnosed with dementia while they are still in employment. Many employees are also juggling work with caring for a family member or friend who has dementia.

We publish a guide for employers on how best to support an employee who has a diagnosis. Download Dementia and the workplace - a guide for employers in Scotland here.

We are also delivering dementia awareness training to workplaces (to find out more contact the Age Scotland ESD Team.
