We are the Digital Leadership Team at Alzheimer Scotland, and we offer you our professional, human centred experience in dementia care, support, service design and transformation.
Our local, national and international work is inspired and informed by families living with dementia and the professionals supporting them. Leading with a human-rights based approach, we advocate informed choice, respect and freedom from discrimination, and have a deep understanding of the wants and needs of people living with dementia.
Our work has included the shaping of national and local strategies to ensure access to personalised supports, working with corporate partners and manufacturers to create physical and digital products that work for people living with dementia, design of services for families living with dementia, sharing of good practice to inform high standard environmental design and the establishment and delivery of a national learning programme. This is turn ensures digital concepts and technology are embedded in the practice of those designing and delivering support. We have developed with partners, a suite of resources to support and inform both practitioners and families.
Our models and products, including Purple Alert and the Dementia Circle approach are replicable and could be applied to your area of work.

“I was so impressed by the learning workshops which our staff received. They came out of the session buzzing and it was so refreshing to see how empowering it had made them feel - they couldn’t wait to try what they had learned and I felt confident to support that.”

"The team at Alzheimer Scotland thinks outside the box. They had this unique ability to understand what we were going through and offered cost effective, realistic ways in which we could improve how we were delivering our services to people living with dementia.”
NHS Acute Care, Team Lead
“I have had such positive feedback from the sessions already! Staff are saying that they pitched perfectly and they feel more confident with technology options. They felt it made such a difference actually seeing the products as opposed to just talking about them. The videos were fab too!”
