A national charity is visiting Moray next month to give locals an insight into dementia.
Alzheimer Scotland will take its memory bus to Elgin to run two information sessions as part of a drive to change perceptions about the illness.
The visit is part of the charity’s dementia friends initiative, which aims to give people an insight into the daily challenges of someone with the condition and the changes that can be made to make life easier for them – including adapting the way you speak and giving clear information.
Anne McWhinnie, Alzheimer Scotland’s dementia friends programme manager, said: “Getting out on the road with the Alzheimer Scotland memory bus is a new and exciting project for us and is a great way for us to talk to new communities about what it is like to live with dementia and how individual and communities can turn this into a positive action.”
The bus is on a three-week tour of the country and will visit 11 locations during that time.
The free hour-long sessions will be held at Elgin Community Centre on Tuesday, September 10 at 3pm and 7pm.
