Dementia Friendly Glenrothes Report and Update

Dementia Friendly Glenrothes have launched their year 1 report outlining all their work to date. 

Dementia Friendly Glenrothes aims to build a community where:

  • people with dementia and their partners, families and carers are understood, respected and supported,

  • people with dementia can find their way around and feel safe,

  • people with dementia have equal access to local facilities - even if they may need a little support to do so,

  • people come together to learn about dementia and make some simple, practical changes that can make a huge difference to people living with dementia.

Highlights of the project to date include having:

  • Approached 187 shops, businesses, services and community groups - out of these 48 have started to look at becoming Dementia friendly

  • 3 organisations become dementia friendly

    • Kingdom Shopping Centre

    • Glenrothes Foodbank

    • Aldi Glenrothes

  • Engaged with 40 people who are affected by Dementia to tell them about their experiences
