Dementia-friendly Tourism Guide launched

Fri 6 Dec 19

Together with VisitEngland, VisitScotland have launched a new guide to help businesses become more dementia-friendly.

The Dementia-friendly Tourism Guide, launched in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society with the support of Alzheimer Scotland, aims to support tourism businesses in accommodating visitors living with dementia through top tips, case studies and signposts to additional resources.

It highlights the need for increasing employee awareness and understanding, and how to make physical environments and facilities more accessible for these visitors.

The guide, available here on, provides information about dementia and lists the various benefits that businesses will experience by catering for this market. It shows that improvements do not need to involve significant investment and changes to infrastructure, highlighting the small steps businesses can take, organised around the themes of Information, People and Place.
