Dementia and sensory challenges

Dementia can be more than memory

We worked alongside Deal With Dementia (DWD) to provide more information on the sensory challenges that can occur with a diagnosis of dementia.

In 2015, Connecting Communities Director Agnes Houston who is living with dementia, undertook some research to find out whether other people with dementia also experienced the kind of sensory challenges she came up against. Her work resulted in the publication of a booklet and launch of an accompanying short film.

The booklet has been widely distributed since its launch at various events worldwide. Agnes is continuing her work in this field with the support of a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship.
