A £50 grant is being offered to families living with dementia by Alzheimer Scotland’s Winter Essentials Fund.
As part of their ‘Time for You’ initiative, the grant could help to buy warm clothing, electric blankets, and hot water bottles or help meet travel costs to attend a local group or visit a loved one if they are in a care home.
The grants are open to unpaid carers of someone with dementia, including if they are in a care home, and people living with a diagnosis.
The grant scheme will run for up to three months, and you can apply via an online form.
Details of the grant scheme and how it operates can be found on the Alzheimer Scotland website https://www.alzscot.org/timeforyouwinter
