Alzheimer Scotland launching new Dementia Advisor network
Posted 5 November, 2009
Alzheimer Scotland will be launching its brand new Dementia Advisor network at our AGM on Friday 6th November at 12.45pm. The network will be officially launched by our President, Lord Sutherland of Houndwood.
The first wave will see 19 Dementia Advisors take up posts in 18 local authorities across Scotland.
The role of Dementia Advisor is a completely new concept for our organisation and we’ve recruited versatile, innovative and dedicated people to fill these posts. People who will work in partnership with local community services to make sure that no-one feels they have to go through dementia on their own. Our long term plan is to have a Dementia Advisor in every local authority and ultimately every town in Scotland Henry Simmons, Chief Executive of Alzheimer Scotland.
