Dementia Friendly Pharmacies
Over 90,000 people in Scotland have dementia, with over 5000 of them living in Forth Valley. These people and their families will regularly use the community pharmacy network and our pharmacy teams will offer help and support.
Alzheimer’s Scotland has developed the Dementia Friends initiative to raise awareness about Dementia and reduce the stigma. The initiative aims to increase understanding of dementia and highlight the small things you can do to help people with the condition. This could be helping someone find a product or being patient at the till if someone with dementia is taking longer to pay.
All community pharmacies in Forth Valley are encouraged to become more ‘Dementia Friendly’.
