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.
On Twitter please reweet messages we send out from @Edinburgh_CC or send out your own tweets using the dementia stigma campaign hashtag #dementiasixlittlethings.
