If you or a loved one receive a dementia diagnosis, it can be a confusing, anxious, and emotional time. As Scotland’s leading dementia charity, Alzheimer Scotland offers a range of services to families facing dementia, from emotional support and care, to practical advice and information.

In the early stage of your journey with dementia, you may wish to make plans for a person you trust to make decisions on your behalf in the future. This means your wishes for your future care can be respected, and it will also help give your family peace of mind.

Alzheimer Scotland aims to make sure nobody faces dementia alone and our Dementia Advisors are an integral part of providing personalised, community support at every stage of a dementia diagnosis. Their care, compassion and commitment has been central to enhancing the lives of thousands of people who have come to Alzheimer Scotland, often in crisis.

To mark Dementia Awareness Week, Alzheimer Scotland has teamed up with the legal experts at Brodies LLP to support people with dementia, their carers and families through our ‘Ask the Expert’ legal clinics. The free 15-minute virtual session will include a specialist from Brodies to answer practical legal questions, and an Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Advisor to answer any queries about the condition and to signpost to local support services.
