Make a Point About Dementia

If you had to make a point about dementia in 140 characters ... what would you want to say?

The Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project (DEEP) and The Carer's Call to Action are making a short film of views from people with dementia and family carers.

This film will be shown at the UK Dementia Congress on 11th November 2014. Dementia Congress is a large yearly conference. It brings together professionals, academics, dementia leaders, carers and people with dementia…to discuss and debate current ideas in dementia.

  • Please consider the impact of dementia on the individual and their family - what is the point you want to make about dementia?
  • In 140 characters (including spaces) please send us your point
  • We want your point in any form; we would like a mixture of media including: a film clip, photograph, 'selfie', painting, drawing, text message, Skype, Face time, a tweet, voice recording, or whatever other creative form you can come up with!
  • If you would like to take part/contribute but need support to do so please contact us

    Innovations in Dementia is a community interest company.

    We work nationally with people with dementia, partner organisations and professionals with the aim of developing and testing projects that will enhance the lives of people with dementia.

    Outcomes from such projects will influence approaches to dementia care and support in order that they are more creative, positive and enabling.

    We aim to work collaboratively with people with dementia in all our work.

    We provide advice and training to other organisations to help them develop more positive care and support services for people with dementia.

    We believe that people with dementia should:

    • Be able to experience all that life has to offer
    • Receive appropriate and sensitive support to access opportunities and learn new skills
    • Be part of opportunities and decisions that affect their lives
