It’s easy!

Alzheimer Scotland’s Centres all over the country will also be running Tea & Blether events to mark Dementia Awareness Week. If you’re living with dementia or want to know more about maintaining your brain health, pop into your local centre to find out more.

At work or school, in your home or community – Tea & Blether can happen anywhere. Every cuppa poured, cake eaten, and experience shared will help to ensure that nobody faces dementia alone. Every penny raised will be spent in Scotland.

Kirsty Stewart, Executive Lead for Stakeholder Engagement at Alzheimer Scotland, said: "Tea & Blether is all about connecting with other people and sharing experiences. Whether you are a person living with dementia, a carer, family member or you are worried about your memory and looking for ways to maintain your brain health, this is a perfect opportunity to connect with Alzheimer Scotland and a very supportive community.

“We are really looking forward to bringing everyone together, to raise awareness and vital funds for brain health and dementia care.  Here’s to even more cuppas, cakes and blethering than ever before.”
