Carers Academy Finalists in Scotland’s Dementia Awards 2019

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Carer’s Academy, a joint intiative between NHS Ayrshire and Arran and University of the West of Scotland which has been nominated as a finalist in the ‘Best Educational Initiative’ at the Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Awards 2019!

The Carer’s Academy, which is free to attend, has been developed in the aim of supporting family members in caring for loved ones who have dementia through enabling them to enhance their knowledge and develop practical skills in dementia care and gain peer support from other carers.

Scotland’s Dementia Awards are a partnership between Alzheimer Scotland, NHS Education for Scotland and the Scottish Social Services Council, to collectively celebrate the achievements of those outstanding people who are making a difference to support people living with dementia and their families across health, social service and community settings in Scotland

The awards will culminate in a ceremony staged during World Alzheimer’s Month on 18 September at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.
