South Queensferry Dementia Friendly Initiative

MAKING SOUTH QUEENSFERRY A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY COMMUNITY

The Almond Neighbourhood Partnership is a key partner in the recently established - South Queensferry Dementia Friendly Initiative. A working group of interested individuals and organisations has been established and a programme of initiatives is being developed to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers.

Activies to date include:

  • Production and publication of a 'Dementia Friendly Queensferry' leaflet.
  • Information points and displays at  South Queensferry Library and the local Health Centre during 'Dementia Awareness Week' [1/6 June]
  • Promotion and distribution of the new leaflet at the Abseiling event on 7 June.
  • Information table at the weekly market on Queensferry High St. [26 July]

The next steps planned by the working group are a series of education/training sessions on 'dementia awareness' for local commercial premises and a specific initiative combating the 'stigma image' associated with dementia.
