During Scotland’s Dementia Awareness Week (Monday 3 to Sunday 9 June), Largs will be raising awareness of dementia.

A dementia awareness week information table will be available between 10am-3pm at Morrisons in Largs on 5 June.

Alzheimers Scotland is encouraging locals to drop in to learn more about the support that is available to them, along with finding out more about how you can get involved with supporting the charity and research.

Alzheimer Scotland believes it is vital that people living with dementia feel recognised, valued and supported in their local communities.

Linda McGuire who works as a Dementia Advisor said: “I’m looking forward to reaching out to our local communities to raise awareness about how we are helping to improve the lives of people living with dementia and their families.

“We’d love locals to pop by, and say hello. By working together, we can help make our community a dementia-friendly place where people can continue to create new friendships and continue to live in the community and feel valued and supported."

If you have any questions, call Alzheimer Scotland’s 24 Freephone Helpline on 0808 808 3000.
