16 Dementia Support

16.1 Dementia support organisations

A number of organisations such as NHS Education for Scotland, Scottish Social Services Council, Alzheimer Scotland (Scotland’s national dementia charity), About Dementia (part of Age Scotland) and Healthcare Improvement Scotland have produced online digital publications and resources. These publications and resources are aimed at providing a wide range of information relating to dementia, including care and support for the condition, transport, housing, human rights and technology with people living with dementia, their families and carers, health and social care staff and the general public. A key area of support for all people living with dementia in Scotland is post-diagnostic support, which is provided for up to one year following a formal diagnosis.
