Dementia Resources and Events

This tool is very useful for carers who are caring for a loved one with Dementia
Tide and Age Scotland would like to invite carers of people with dementia to join a webinar on:
Law 4 Dementia Carers: Coming out of Covid? on Friday 14th August from 4.00 to 5.30 pm
The aim of the webinar is to help carers of people living with dementia to understand their legal rights and what the law might mean for them as lockdown (potentially) comes to an end. This is a time of change and uncertainty for carers. There are many questions to be answered and explanations to be provided about carers’ rights and entitlements – and those of the person they care for - in a wide range of situations. From knowing when and how care home visiting might resume to understanding what happens if you have to sell your house, what support you might be entitled to on a day-to-day basis and what happens if a second wave occurs and we go back into lockdown, carers need to be clear about what the law in Scotland says and the impact it could have on them.
This webinar is for carers of people living with dementia and is based on the issues and questions that carers raise from their day-to-day experiences. It will feature an expert panel with representatives from TiDE, Age Scotland’s About Dementia and Dementia Training teams and the legal profession in Scotland. The panel will give brief presentations on different aspects of carers’ rights in post-Covid (or nearly post-Covid) Scotland and who will take and answer your questions.
We hope you can join us and we are looking forward to hearing your questions and comments. To join the webinar please register in advance for this meeting:
