Why your story is important to us
Everyone’s experience of living with dementia is important. Whether you are a person living with dementia, a caregiver, volunteer or you provide professional support, your experience can help us understand the key issues and challenges of living well with dementia. Some of these issues and challenges will be relevant to other people in similar circumstances, or may help others to understand your perspective. Sharing your story can help raise awareness of the issues that are significant to you, highlight experiences and maybe give inspiration to others.
What we do next?
Your story will contribute to our growing evidence-base about experiences of living well with dementia, and how we can support people to do so.
The knowledge we gain about people’s experiences of dementia will be anonymised and used to support innovations in policy and practice as part of the ongoing activities of the Dementia Innovation Hub and the North East Dementia Alliance.
We may contact you for more information if we wish to feature your story on our website to highlight the issues you have raised.
