It is estimated that 90,000 people are living with dementia in Scotland.

A new practice framework aimed at improving the way that housing organisations support people who have dementia was launched at a recent event in Edinburgh.

Housing and dementia: a practice framework for Scotland's housing sector was commissioned by Healthcare Improvement Scotland's ihub in partnership with CIH Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland.

The Framework includes five outcomes that people living with dementia and their carers have said are important to them and 11 commitments that housing organisations should already be achieving or working towards in order to meet the outcomes.
