We're here for you this winter

We're here for you this winter

We know how stressful and disorientating the festive holidays can be for many people living with dementia and their families and carers, with disruption to daily routines and difficulties accessing support, services and assessments for those who require it.

We want to reassure you that Alzheimer Scotland will remain here for you this winter: 


24h Freephone Dementia Helpline

Our 24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline 0808 808 3000 is there for you day or night, whenever you need us. Our highly skilled team will offer a listening ear and emotional support, provide information and will signpost on to other supports if necessary. You can also contact our Helpline team via email on [email protected]

National Dementia Advisor Service

Our National Dementia Advisor Service is wholly funded by Alzheimer Scotland from the generous donations and fundraising activities of our thousands of supporters. The service is available from 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday and aims to provide a responsive, high quality information, advice and advocacy service relating to all aspects of brain health and dementia. Call us on: 0300 373 5774 (Charged at a local call rate) or email: [email protected]




Warm spaces

We know that rising energy costs are a worry for many people. All of our 24 Dementia Resource Centres (DRCs) will be providing extra groups and sessions where possible, providing people with a warm space and company. This might be with additional Tea & Blether sessions or more Coffee Catch Ups where a warm welcome and a hot drink awaits. Remember our Centres are also open when no groups are running so do drop in for a cuppa and a chat.
