Due to it being World Alzheimer's Day on Thursday 21 September 2017, social service Dementia Champions and City of Edinburgh Council Dementia Ambassadors are marking this very special day by holding four cafe style events.
These events will help people with a diagnosis of dementia and those who care for them to hear more about Dementia and where to access groups and services in Edinburgh.
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a very unsettling and anxious time for an individual and for their family and Healthcare Plus are very pleased to be able to raise awareness of World Alzheimer' s Day and the events that are being planned.
