With over 850,000 people estimated to be diagnosed in the UK, we are all in a sense living with dementia. Awareness of dementia is on the rise, but how much are current representations informed by the many, diverse and unique experiences of people living with different dementias and their loved ones?
In recognition of Dementia Action Week this week, Created Out of Mind are encouraging people affected by dementias to share their stories and experiences with us online using #whatdementiameanstome or by sending words and/or images to firstname.lastname@example.org. The hope is that getting as many people as possible sharing will enrich the current narrative of dementia.
