Alzheimer Scotland is the leading dementia organisation in Scotland. We probably all know someone in our circle of family and friends who is facing dementia or caring for a loved one - it is certainly a subject close to our hearts here at The Pierhouse. We were recently approached to donate a prize for an auction at Alzheimer Scotland's Red Carpet Charity Ball in Aberdeen. We donated a short break at the hotel and hope the prize raises lots of funds in the auction.
We also found out a little bit more about the organisation's work - Alzheimer Scotland campaigns for the rights of people with dementia and their families and provides an extensive range of innovative and personalised support services. The Alzheimer Scotland website also has lots of ideas for organising a fundraising event.
We were also interested in the work of Dementia Friends Scotland who provide information sessions across Scotland. The interactive and informative training course provides an understanding of how to interact with people who have dementia.
You can find out more about Dementia Friends Scotland here - the website lists the upcoming sessions and tells you how to register.
