This week is Dementia Awareness Week #DAW2017 and the Dementia Carer Voices team has lots of activity scheduled.
Project Engagement Lead, Tommy Whitelaw, is touring the Western Isles giving talks at hospitals, colleges and care homes to raise awareness and ask people to make a pledge to make a difference. He will be sending updates on his trip that will go on the blog shortly. Alliance Director, Irene Oldfather and the rest of the team will be attending Alzheimer’s Scotland Conference on Friday.
We are also keen to hear from you with your stories of caring for a person with dementia or how you would like to make a difference to the lives of people with dementia.
Previous guest blogs have been personal stories, reflections or opinions. We would love to hear from you if you have a piece you would like to contribute. Please send us your stories, poems, articles, posts or ideas.
