Advanced Dementia Consultation – we want to hear your views Feb 3rd St Mary’s Church Irvine

Dementia Carer Voices will be holding a consultation event on Tuesday 3rd February at St Mary’s Church in Irvine on Alzheimer Scotland’s development of a community support model for people with advanced dementia.

Their draft proposal suggests using the 8 Pillars Model of Community Support as a basis and explores the different types of approaches to care, along with the phases and symptoms of advanced dementia. The paper is available in full at

Dementia Carer Voices will be hosting a discussion around these topics in Irvine on 3rd February and would like to hear the views of people living with dementia, their families and carers and any other interested parties. As places are limited, preference will be given to people who have had some experience of, or a particular interest in advanced dementia. (Carer, former Carer, neighbour, friend, family member). Professionals can attend if places permit, and are encouraged to bring Carers with them.

Tea and coffee will be available from 10.45am at St Mary’s Church Hall, with discussions beginning at 11am. A small sandwich lunch will be provided.

To find out more information, or to register your interest, please contact:
