Burnside – Dementia Friends

July 2015 Members of the local community in Laurencekirk recently attended a Dementia Friends session held at Burnside. Burnside’s aim is to support their local community and ensure local businesses are dementia friendly. We received very positive feedback with one attendee saying “I have learned a lot; there are things that happen to people with dementia that I had no idea happened. I now understand little things I can do to make things easier for older people to live independently and use our businesses.”
