Dementia Friendly East Lothian - Please complete our survey
Over the last 18 months, communities across East Lothian have been talking about what life is like if you have dementia and what it means to be dementia friendly. A number have held community events and more are planned. Individuals and organisations are learning about dementia and building relationships with people with dementia.
People are raising money to be used to support dementia friendly activities where they live.
As our Dementia Friendly Communities grow across East Lothian we want to know what help and support you need to make your aspirations a reality. We also want to know if you see a value in working and learning together across East Lothian and with other Dementia Friendly Communities across the UK and beyond.
Dementia Friendly East Lothian was originally set up to support local communities to start off their own conversations. It has provided a mix of ad hoc support and encouragement but this is a good time to take stock of what support, if any, local communities feel they need over the next year or so and to explore how best to ensure this is available in the right way for you. We will use this information to determine what Dementia Friendly East Lothian does over the next year.
