Help Cure the Stigma of Dementia Campaign

Devised in conjunction with Edinburgh residents who have dementia and their relatives, the campaign is part of the on-going work by the City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian and Alzheimer Scotland to make Edinburgh a dementia friendly city. The campaign highlights the stigma associated with dementia and the little things we can all do to help.

The six key ways to help someone with dementia and make them feel included are

  1. Learning more about the facts
  2. Show patience, for example if someone is having problems with their words
  3. Include them in conversations
  4. Being kind and show respect
  5. Helping them to join in
  6. Be a friend
