44% Rise in Dementia in Grampian

Almost 3000 more people are living with dementia in Grampian, according to the latest figures.


NHS Grampian said that around 9600 people in the area are now believed to have dementia, up by more than 44% a decade ago.


The news comes as hundreds of healthcare professionals and carers from across the area gather in Aberdeen today for a significant conference focused on dementia.


The conference, organised by NHS Grampian and taking place at AECC, is aimed at raising awareness of the latest care, support and research on dementia and will be opened by Minister for Mental Health Maureen Watt MSP.

The Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS) is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2017 Catalysts for Change programme, which seeks to provide funding to nurses in the community to lead short, innovative development projects in collaboration with others, focused on addressing inequalities and enabling health and wellbeing. Inequalities in health continue to be a major issue within Scotland; when community based nurses work in genuine partnership with third sector and community groups then together we can improve the health and wellbeing of the most vulnerable in society. Small grants of £5,000 are available.

The Catalysts for Change programme is designed to enable community based nurses and their partners across sectors to achieve one or more of the following:

1. Make a contribution to reducing inequalities in health
2. Promote health and wellbeing
3. Build relationships that enable culture change
4. Enable and involve individuals, groups or communities who may be considered excluded or marginalised.

The closing date for applications is Monday 5th June 2017 at 12 noon. Guidance notes and the application form are available on the QNIS website: https://www.qnis.org.uk/what-is-community-nursing/catalysts-for-change-funding-2017/
