Dementia

With the number of people in Scotland living with Dementia expected to increase by 50% to over 120,000 in the next 20 years, it's vital that people are better informed about the steps they can take to reduce the risk of developing it, and if they are diagnosed, how to live well with it.

Age Scotland’s Early Stage Dementia Project, funded by the Life Changes Trust, offers dementia awareness workshops to organisations and people throughout Scotland. These sessions are offered for free to Age Scotland’s members and training is delivered in a fun and engaging way. As part of our commitment to being a dementia aware charity, all of Age Scotland’s employees and volunteers also undertake awareness training.

We have produced a wide range of free information guides for people living with dementia, carers and employers, such as ‘A carers guide to creating a dementia friendly home’, ‘Benefits for people living with Dementia’ and ‘Dementia and the workplace’.
