Dementia Friendly

Dementia FriendlyEast Lothian has one of the fastest growing populations of people living with dementia. As a community, we need to respond and support people to have as a good a quality of life as they can, and support families.

That is why we are involved in ‘Dementia Friendly East Lothian’ – a community initiative to raise awareness in all sections of the community of dementia, and how to support people living with it.

We can provide information and advice, but most importantly, our care staff understand the impact of dementia, and provide care in a sensitive and respectful way.

For more information about dementia visit the Dementia Centre at Stirling University or Alzheimer Scotland.
