How do we treat patients with dementia?

Caring for patients with dementia

Our aim is to provide care that is person-centred and tailored to what the individual requirements are for patients suffering from dementia. To help us achieve this, we ensure our staff have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to recognise and support people living with dementia before, during and after an emergency incident. This training includes Dementia Friend sessions provided by Alzheimer’s Scotland.

We are also working with the other emergency services and other partners to maintain and improve the general safety and wellbeing of people living with dementia, their families and carers.
