Scottish Dementia Awareness Week

Dementia awareness week events in Edinburgh

It is dementia awareness week from the 1st to the 7th of June 2015. There are events and activities being held around Edinburgh where experts are on hand so that you can get more information about dementia and become involved in dementia friendly Edinburgh.

During dementia awareness week we want to help people feel they talk openly about dementia.
