This webinar will outline how ‘iSupport’ was translated and culturally adapted for South Asian dementia caregivers in three languages: Bengali, Punjabi, and Urdu. The webinar will outline the content of ‘iSupport’ and discuss how it can be accessed and used

Life story work is well known within dementia care for its benefits for people with dementia, their families and for paid staff members. Initial evidence suggests that digital life story work may take these benefits even further. Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care Trust with VerseOne (developer) created a bespoke life stories platform as part of a bigger project – Worcester Life Stories. We explain how we created the platform, what it looks like and some of the evidence we have so far of its utility.
