Dementia Dialogue is a podcast that provides people with lived experiences a way to share their stories with the broader community. A series of Learning Guides have been created to help people with lived experience of dementia, care partners, service providers as well as others within the community, explore four themes of the Dementia Journey. Learners listen to podcast excerpts that speak to these themes and reflect on what they can learn from these.

What are the Dementia Dialogue Learning Guides?

Dementia Dialogue is a podcast that provides people with lived experiences a way to share their stories and the broader community. Listeners who have dementia and care partners gain insight and strengthen their adaptive skills. Episodes help the broader community understand what it means to live with dementia and how they can offer support.
 
A series of Learning Guides have been drafted to help people with lived experience of dementia (people living with dementia and care partners) as well as professionals and others within the community, explore four themes of the Dementia Journey through listening to podcast excerpts that speak to these themes and reflecting on what they can learn from these.

  • Changing & Adapting
  • Focus On Me
  • Relationships & Community
  • System Journey
