Scotlands Dementia Awareness Week 2016

grace-notesThis year it runs from 30 May – 5 June, so today there are still 2 days to go! However the attention and resources made available are worth locating. I will start of with something that came out of a project carried out here, called “Grace Notes”.  This inspiring project brought together students, people with dementia and their carers to create six brand new songs exploring the theme of dementia. The songs are being released each day this week and we are at number 5 today, so one left to go.

You can access the songs at:

You have also still got time to head along to fundraising event, see http://daw.dementiascotland.org/events

You might also want to look at three new videos at Police Scotland that all came out this week. Interesing and moving and a great resource if you have to discuss Dementia.Henry has dementia and if you are one of our National Dementa Champions you might recognise him. Brian cares for some one with Dementia and DAWDLE is a support group.

I have posted all 3 below and hope you enjoy watching.

and the BBC’s Living with Dementia pages http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03qzz8m

which I have already mentioned in the Blog before. So much new stuff in such a short period of time!
