For a week we talked about dementia. A key feature of Dementia Awareness Week, 2015 was our ‘Tea & Blether’ events all over the country; encouraging members of the public to meet and talk about dementia in a relaxed setting.
During the week we promoted the role and added value of Allied Health Professions, raising awareness about our unique therapeutic and rehabilitation skills. Ultimately helping to improve the public’s understanding of who we are and why they would want to approach us for help. We had the opportunity to listen, to hear what is important to you, people living with dementia and your families and friends.
We wanted to share with you some of our #mugselfies from our tea & blether’s, so sit back and enjoy looking through our photo gallery.
What were your highlights from Dementia Awareness Week, Scotland 2015? Send us your #mugselfie to TalkingDementia@Alzscot.org and we will add you photos to the gallery.
Thank you for being involved in this year’s Dementia Awareness Week, 2015
Allied Health Professional Consultant, Alzheimer Scotland
My remit in Alzheimer Scotland is to bring the skills of AHPs to the forefront of dementia practice and to share with them the principles and practice of working in a major charity that is dedicated to “making sure nobody faces dementia alone”. I am leading the delivery of commitment 4 of Scotland’s Dementia Strategy. In short, a great job working with great people.
