Alzheimer Scotland offers specialist one-to-one support for people with dementia who are at any stage of the illness. You have as much choice and control, in deciding what sort of support you need. We have developed our specialist support through years of experience and engagement, and we will work with you in lots of different ways to make sure that we provide you with support that is designed for your needs and delivered at the times you want.
If you have a diagnosis of dementia, we can help you to keep doing the activities and hobbies you enjoy, as well as staying independent in your own home. We support people to develop memory assistive techniques, plan structures to their day and maintain their social networks. Supporting you to carry out activities yourself; 'doing with' rather than 'doing for' is central to how we work. Or, if you care for someone at home, we can help you at the times that work best for you.
We aim to provide a high level of staff continuity to build trusting relationships in which staff get to know each person as an individual, understanding their personal preferences, routines and interests.
