17 April 2020Dementia Friendly Stronsay

Dementia Friendly Stronsay

 

The Stronsay Development Trust is pleased to announce the start of a new 18-month project designed to enable our island community to become an Alzheimer Scotland recognized Dementia Friendly Community. In Scotland, over 90,000 people are living with dementia and that number is expected to rise as the population continues to age. Our goal by becoming a recognized Dementia Friendly Community is to allow community members diagnosed with dementia to live as independently as possible, continuing to enjoy their favorite activities with a sense of empowerment and support, knowing their voice is heard and valued. We also hope by obtaining this recognition to welcome and support visitors living with dementia, their families and carers. 

 

Our project will focus on two key areas: community education and the development and management of a dementia aid lending library. 

 

The project will be overseen by a steering group and managed by a new part-time Project Coordinator. There will also be a variety of volunteer opportunities. 

 

This work is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. The Life Changes Trust was established by The National Lottery Community Fund in April 2013 with an endowment of £50 million to support transformational improvement in the quality of life, well-being, empowerment and inclusion of two key groups in Scotland: people affected by dementia and care experienced young people.
