A new strategy for people with dementia in the Scottish Borders will allow them to have a better quality of life, according to NHS Border chiefs. Services for people with dementia and their carers have been redesigned, with a focus on more care at home rather than in hospital.
It comes just months after Borders General Hospital was criticised for having a non-dementia friendly environment. Health chiefs say it's important that they provide more care at home, and that people know what is available to them.
