Dementia is associated with an ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities, including thinking, language, memory, understanding and judgement.
Dementia is a common condition, affecting around 85,000 people in Scotland and the risk of developing dementia increases with age.
Although dementia is a progressive, life-limiting condition, for which there is currently no cure, it is still possible to live a full life with dementia as there are a number of effective treatments and strategies that can help them to cope better with their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Alzheimer Scotland aim to raise awareness of dementia through a range of national and local activities.
You can find out more about the week and what’s happening in your area between June 18 and June 24 on Alzheimer Scotland’s website.
