Dementia Awareness Week
Posted by Lillyburn Care Home
The Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Awareness week took part on the 3-9th June this year and helped raise awareness of the importance of dementia research can have and the vital need for new research volunteers.
In order to help raise awareness, Lillyburn invited Angi Inch of Alzheimer’s Scotland to facilitate dementia awareness sessions for our relatives, friends and staff. We displayed lots of helpful information and came together to enjoy a posh, purple afternoon tea.
Marie Galligan, Practice Development Co-Ordinator said ‘Thank you to Angi Inch, Dementia Advisor, for coming along today. We at Lillyburn understand that it’s everyone job to raise awareness about dementia. If people have an understanding of the illness, they can make informed choices about the care they receive and families feel more empowered as well.’
