One million pound funding to support people with dementia to live in their own homes
An organisation which supports older people to live longer in their own homes has been given one million pounds to provide customised support services for people affected by dementia.
The money will be used to improve the homes, independence and confidence of people living with dementia, ensuring that they receive equipment and adaptations to assist them to continue to live independently within their own homes for as long as possible.
The three year funding has been awarded to Care and Repair, a charity who provide housing support across Scotland, to boost three pilot projects in Aberdeen, Angus, and Lochaber, Skye & Lochalsh. These areas were chosen to reflect the different mix of city, urban, rural and remote demographies.
