The shopping centre event is aimed at the general public and will give people the opportunity to participate in a learning exercise to experience firsthand the physical and mental challenges those with dementia experience. This is to promote more understanding and increase the quality of care those dealing with dementia receive from family members and professional care givers.

In collaboration with Alzheimer Scotland and Age Scotland a stall within the shopping centre will provide information on health and wellbeing as well as job opportunities in the care industry.

If you are at Cameron Toll on Wednesday please be sure to visit the stand and, if spaces are available, take the tour.
