Dementia Dog

The Dementia Dog Project is a charitable collaboration between Alzheimer Scotland and Dogs for Good, bringing together leading dementia support services with the provision of highly trained dogs. Find out who we help.

Based in Scotland, this project aims to explore and measure ways that trained dogs can help people to live well with dementia.

Dementia assistance dog programme:

We train and provide dementia assistance dogs with people in Scotland who are still living at home, where one person has a diagnosis of dementia and the other is their full time carer. Find out how a dementia assistance dog can help.

Dementia community dog programme:

We are pioneering new ways that trained dogs can help people with dementia in the wider community, in both group and individual settings, to help increase confidence and reduce social isolation. Find out more about our dementia community dog programme.
