People with dementia get by with a little help from their friends. And anybody can become a Scottish Dementia Friend. It’s just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition. This could be helping someone find the right bus or being patient in a till queue if someone with dementia is taking longer to pay. Every action counts. Become a Dementia Friend today!



Get your friends, family and colleagues together and hold a fundraiser during Dementia Awareness Week. You can help Alzheimer Scotland to challenge dementia.
