Your Voice: turning up the volume for those living with dementia

Too often all that is heard of dementia is the distress, worry and fear that a full and independent life has come to an end with the diagnosis.  But for many, in particular those in the early stages of the condition, this is far from the case.  To provide a platform for sharing experiences, ideas, suggestions and information about the practical tools available telecare company, Just Checking has launched ‘Your Voice’, a campaign designed to give voice to the positive experiences and insights of those with dementia and their relatives.

As part of this campaign the company has compiled answers to the questions families most commonly ask, is broadcasting the thoughts of the friends and family of dementia sufferers, running a series of webinars and planning competitions that will give sufferers and their friends and family a way to raise their voice.

“Dementia is increasingly widespread; over 800,000 people in the UK have dementia, a figure that is expected to rise by 25% over the next decade,” explained Celia Price, director and founder of Just Checking.  “Whatever its cause it ultimately robs a person of their sense of identity and has a big impact on their family and friends but a diagnosis does not mean that this will be the position overnight.  With the right tools, knowledge and support it is possible for individuals to go on living independent lives, in some cases for many years.  This positive outlook is rarely discussed, which is why we have launched ‘Your Voice’.  We want to help people with dementia as well as their friends, family and carers speak out about their experiences and share their constructive ideas.”
