New dementia language guidelines published

Care home provider KYN have worked with Innovations in Dementia to produce new guidelines on dementia language. 

Emma Hewat, Head of Dementia at KYN said:
“We wanted to draw upon people’s lived experiences of dementia to create a new set of guidelines that was inclusive of their views, experiences and expectations of how they are portrayed in the media. The guideline creation is an example of how including the perspectives of people affected by dementia can be successfully utilised in educating the media and broader society.” 

Allison, Dory, George, Gerry, Julie, Lorraine and Steve from Innovations in Dementia worked with KYN, supported by Philly Hare, to produce these guidelines, which can be found here:
