DEMENTIA

The 'Transforming the Deaf Dementia Experience' Project, is a community interest initiative that supports Deaf people living with dementia and their carers. The project aims to promote a better understanding of dementia by developing accessible resources, information, and toolkits in British Sign Language (BSL).

The Project Team also provide BSL dementia friendly training for healthcare professionals, charities, organisations and dementia friendly communities and conduct research to determine the current diagnosis and provision of Dementia support.

Below you will find some helpful BSL information and resources.
