Dementia Friendly Communities
During Dementia Awareness Week, Ellie Donnelly fromAlzheimer’s Scotland held a drop-in session at UOG Business Centre. Ellie discussed the local support available to those with Dementia as well as their families. She also talked about ways in which we can work towards being a Dementia Friendly community, making sure that nobody faces dementia alone.
Ellie has kindly given us a guide to local services available for people with dementia and their families throughout the Western Isles. The guide is at the UOG offices for anybody to peruse, please feel free to come into the office to read or borrow it. I
