Dementia Friendly Penicuik Conversation
Alzheimer Scotland Midlothian facilitated the first Dementia Friendly Penicuik Conversation. The report from the event is now available and can be viewed by clicking here.
Art by Post
The Southbank Centre has started a new project called “Art by Post”. It is aimed at people who are having to stay at home during the current coronavirus outbreak. In this project, four artists will share their experience and produce some booklets on how to get started.
We are hoping that all the people living with dementia, carers, family members, staff and volunteers who are part of the Alzheimer Scotland family, would like to join us in creating some artwork. We already know how inspirational you can all be, so if you would like to take part, and would be willing to share your work with us, we will gather it together and use it for a project later in the year.
