About Dementia Dialogue

Our podcast provides people with lived experience a way to share their stories with each other and the broader community. Listeners who have dementia, care partners, and others gain insight and strengthen their adaptive skills. Episodes also help the broader community understand what it means to live with dementia and how they can support people. 

We also interview researchers, authors, advocates, health professionals, and others who are contributing to improving the lives of people with dementia. Our guests are experts in their own lived experience or in a select field relevant to the dementia experience.

Our podcast is a community-based initiative. A volunteer Editorial Board contributes by identifying topics for episodes, potential guests and several members also serve as guest hosts. They help us in our effort to touch upon the many ways in which dementia is experienced and the diverse ways people respond and adapt.
A 6 episode series in French will be available in early 2022.

We welcome feedback and suggestions from listeners and encourage you to fill out our listener survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/73V53S5 which will be open until August 31, 2021.
