About Dementia

About Dementia

About Dementia is Scotland’s forum for improving lives for people affected by dementia. We work alongside people with lived experience of dementia to shape the policy and practice that matters to them.

Collaborating with people with lived experience is at the core of what we do. We believe that people living with dementia and unpaid carers are best qualified to say what is and isn’t working and how to do it better. Through regular group meetings, we connect with our members to hear their views on the issues that matter most to them.

About Dementia is best summed in the words of one of our members: the community “enables people with lived experience of dementia to thrive and flourish by providing genuine opportunities to be meaningfully involved in important projects, thus providing opportunities denied by many after diagnosis”.
