Our vision is for our communities in the Highlands to recognise and embrace the challenges a life with dementia presents to the families affected, enabling them to live life to its full potential.
We aim to achieve this by:
- Working with local services and businesses – starting here in East Sutherland – to help our local communities become friendly and fulfilling places to live for people with dementia and their families.
- Creating local opportunities for people with dementia so that they can take part in their chosen activities of life for as long as they wish to.
- Increasing empathy and support for dementia carers by developing a shared understanding of the practical and emotional challenges they face.
- Challenging the myths and stigma associated with dementia which acts as barriers to change.
