Dementia: Making a difference in your community

On Monday 15th November, Age Scotland’s Dementia Training team pooled forces with colleagues from About Dementia to host the organisation’s first ever national dementia learning event online. Over 120 people attended the event, which was chaired by our Director of Community Services, Fiona Cross, and included 7 keynote speakers and 21 interactive workshops on the following topics:

• Enabling outdoor spaces and activities
• Empowering carers
• Taking the lead from people living with dementia
• Intergenerational approaches to dementia inclusion

We are delighted to share summaries of the keynote presentations and workshops in this follow up report
