Dementia Support

We have a long history of supporting people with learning disabilities who develop dementia and will often have supported people for many years prior to their dementia diagnosis.

In recent years we have begun to support people with dementia who do not have a learning disability and overall the number of people with dementia we are supporting is steadily increasing.

Our support for people with dementia recognises the importance of enabling the person to maintain their independence and life skills, whilst complementing any support the person receives from others. We have considerable experience of adapting each person’s support as their needs change, and of supporting individuals and families with end of life care. We are committed to enabling people to live in the familiarity of their own home for as long as they are able to.

Teams supporting a person with dementia have access to specialist training, and staff working alongside people who may be at an increased risk of developing dementia receive awareness training to Dementia Informed level.

On this page you can find our organisational strategy for supporting people with dementia, which is aligned to the Scottish Government's 'National Dementia Strategy 2013-2016' and the 'Charter of Rights of People with Dementia and their Carers in Scotland'. Also on this page are a number of resources to accompany our Dementia Strategy, including a booklet for families which outlines our approach to supporting people with dementia and a brief summary of the strategy.
