Services we provide :We provide the national Dementia Helpline, this website and local services all over Scotland for people with dementia and their carers. Our local services may include:

day centres providing the chance to socialise and enjoy activities and outings, and giving carers a break (some centres open in the evenings and at weekends too)
home support services providing company and help to maintain skills and independence at home, while the carer is free to go out (sometimes this is also available overnight)
drop-in centres where people with dementia and carers can socialise
support groups for carers and for people with dementia
carer education helping carers learn more about the illness and how to cope
one-to-one support to help people with dementia and their families cope with the illness
welfare rights service
information and advice on a wide range of subjects.

offer a particular skill such as art or music
drive or escort people with dementia to and from a day centre
