Work Programme 7: Deaf people with dementia

Emma Ferguson-Coleman and Prof Alys Young (Work Programme 7) are currently setting up a Member Involvement group of Deaf people who use sign language and carers living with dementia.

Groups meet on a two-monthly basis and are currently exploring ideas for projects, including life story, training and GP access. Recently, the Open Doors Neighbourhoods Research Group visited Salford Museum and were treated to a tour of ‘Larkhill Place’ and enjoyed a ‘taster’ of the reminiscence boxes. Many thanks to Naomi Lewis (Outreach Officer) for arranging and supporting us during our visit.
