What we do

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Increasing empathy and support for dementia carers by developing a shared understanding of the practical and emotional challenges they face.
  4. Challenging the myths and stigma associated with dementia which acts as barriers to change.
