Dementia Dialogue 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.
There are interviews with researchers, authors, advocates, health professionals, and others who are contributing to improving the lives of people with dementia. The guests are experts in their own lived experience or in a select field relevant to the dementia experience.
The podcast is a community-based initiative. A volunteer Editorial Board contributes by identifying topics for episodes, and potential guests and several members also serve as guest hosts. They help to touch upon the many ways in which dementia is experienced and the diverse ways people respond and adapt.
