Dementia Training

Around 93,000 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 for people living with dementia.

Age Scotland’s dementia training team seeks to raise awareness of dementia and help people learn how to be more inclusive of people living with the condition.

We offer free online training courses on Dementia Awareness, Dementia Inclusion, and Carers' Rights. Sessions run regularly throughout the year and there are also self-study options, which allow you to complete courses in your own time.
