Alzheimer ScotlandThere are over 700,000 people with dementia in the UK, and more and more people are diagnosed each year. Although there is as yet no cure for dementia, good support networks can make the world of difference to people with dementia and their families. Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland's leading specialist dementia charity helping people with all kinds of dementia, their families and carers, and campaigning to improve public policies. We provide practical services around Scotland including day care, home support, counselling and support groups. From our central office Edinburgh, we produce a wide range of information leaflets about research, drug treatments, service options and other caring issues. We also run a confidential freephone 24-hour Helpline.
