SIT? Dementia-friendly communities Edinburgh City Initiatives 2014 – 2015

Dementia-friendly communities together with high quality care services and a variety of supportive care settings play a part in helping people to live well with dementia.  

This report written by ‘Faith in Older People’ reviews the considerable work that has taken place in Edinburgh to create dementia-friendly communities and is useful for people with an interest in taking forward dementia friendly work in the future.

The report uses the four corner stones (Place, People, Networks and Resources) of a dementia friendly community described in the report Creating a Dementia Friendly York to bring together evidence of change. Each section of the report discusses the change that has happened and what could be focused on for the future.
