Dementia Friends sessions at An Lanntair today

The An Lanntair team was the very first in the Western Isles to benefit from a Dementia Friends session today.

Fiona Macleod is the brand new Dementia Advisor for Alzheimer Scotland and she delivered our morning and afternoon awareness sessions with Geraldine Ditta, who flew over from Inverness (despite high winds and heavy rain) for us today.

The sessions involved a lot of myth-busting, information, discussion, practical work and plenty of tea/coffee and cake.

We learned about living well with dementia, how important community is and what we can do as a team in our work environment to support people living in our community with dementia.
