The impact of the Coved-19 virus and subsequent restrictions on social contact has had a disproportionate affect on people with dementia, missing connecting with friends and family, not getting about - perhaps unable to understand or forgetting why this has been happening.
Throughout, Alzheimer Scotland's teams in Argyll & Bute have been working hard to reduce isolation and loneliness, kept in touch by phone, letter - even on line with video calls and 'virtual' get-togethers for those able to use the technology. We've tried to be there - helping families and unpaid carers too cope with the strains the virus has imposed.
BUT, what we haven't been able to do - is fundraise.
So thanks to donations from Oban's amazing and generous shops and businesses we are having....... The Big Christmas On-line Raffle!
For just a suggested £3 donation your name - make sure you leave it - will be entered into our draw - and might appear on our Christmas goodies! Whisky, rum, luxury food, a huge bag of festive logs, vouchers to spend.
Please support us: we need to make sure nobody faces dementia alone.
