Dementia Link Workers

Dementia Link Workers are employed by Alzheimer Scotland and are co-located with the Community Mental Health Teams across the region. Their role is to offer advice to people who have been recently diagnosed, or are in the process of being diagnosed, with dementia and to their carers. This service specialises in helping people in the early stages.

This is me – hospital passport

If you are going into hospital and you have memory problems , take your hospital passport with you. ‘This is me’ will help the hospital to help you. It belongs to you and should be returned to you when you are discharged. ‘This is Me’ is a Dumfries and Galloway wide initiative to improve the hospital experience for people with dementia and their carers.
