Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer Scotland initiative...

Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer Scotland initiative...aiming to raise awareness about Dementia and reduce the stigma, this is not a befriending service and we will not ask Dementia Friends to visit people living with Dementia.


Anybody can become a Scottish Dementia Friend. It’s just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition. This could be helping someone find the right bus or being patient in a till queue if someone with dementia is taking longer to pay. Every action counts.

There are two ways to become a Dementia Friend – by either following the steps above or by attending a FREE information session delivered by our Dementia Advisors.
