Dementia Awareness Week Activities 30th May - 5th June 2016

As many of you will know the multi-agency Lanarkshire Dementia Strategy Implementation Grouphas an action plan which includes the co-ordination and promotion ofDementia Awareness Week Activity across Lanarkshire.

This builds on the excellent activity that colleagues across Lanarkshire led on last year The aim is not to be over prescriptive, but just bring all the activity together into one plan, meaning we can concentrate our collective efforts and assets across Lanarkshire with a wide range of activities. The success of the programme last year has seen Dementia related resources amongst the most requested leaflets in the health improvement library.

Order Materials

NHS Lanarkshire Health Promotion Library have set up the same system as last year to let everyone know all the dementia related materials that are available for ordering (free) to support your activity and make it easy for anyone to order them. I have attached a catalogue (see page 18 to 21 for Dementia Specific Resources in the mental health section), order form and registration form (to be completed for you to register with the library). Please return your order form marking the e-mail 'Dementia Awareness Week'and return toLibraries@lanarlskire.scot.nhs.uk For any enquiries please phone:01698 377600/ 01698 377629.
