A Treasure Chest of Tips: to help you to keep living as well as you can

From people with dementia, for people with dementia

Are you living with a diagnosis of dementia, or think you may have it?

If you want to learn from and share with others ‘in the same boat’, you’re in the right place!

The Tip-Share website is bursting with Tips, work-arounds and short cuts. All from people with dementia themselves. And these will grow and grow.

The website aims to be clear, easy to use, searchable and informative. We’d love you to use it, contribute – and even become a Tip-Sharer yourself!

Here are a few examples of some of our Tips…

Finding your way around the site…

We have tried to make this website as accessible as possible. You can increase the size of the words, or if you prefer, you can listen instead of reading (click on tabs at top right of any page). To get back to the Home Page, just click on the Back to Home arrow at the top left of the pages, and to get back to the top of the page, just click on the box at the bottom right of the page.

We need to know which Tips people are finding most useful. So, if you like a Tip, please click on the ‘Like this Tip’ icon.

Expand Text Option

By clicking on one of the three letter A’s that appear at the top of each page you are able to increase (or decrease) the size of the text on any page.

The content of this website is solely and intentionally made up of Tips shared by people with dementia themselves. Innovations in Dementia is not able to take any responsibility for these, or to give ‘professional’ advice, information or sign-posting ourselves.


I really like the approach: Cognitive rehabilitation, instead of therapy. Helping people newly diagnosed to continue living as they did earlier in their lives.
Great to see @alzheimerssoc working with @Innov_Dementia and long may it continue.

We're all up & ready for Day 2 of the #DEEP Facilitators Gathering

Feel so privileged to be back at @WoodbrookeUK - still as wonderful as ever!

Our lovely @Dementia_UoB Expert by Experience
@Bellfastboy has been working with @StephenGraham73 on this. So good to know how much research was done for this role. Looking forward to seeing it https://twitter.com/danielmays9/status/1437780930547097604

When you’re meeting people for the first time you’ve only ever met on zoom. At least I spotted the Scottish @DementiaVoices lass!

Overwhelmed by meeting lots of lovely people yesterday at Woodbrooke. Lots of Hugs where had. I wake early this morning looking out on the beautiful grounds and gardens to another day at this beautiful place. With @doryitsme @Innov_Dementia @DementiaVoices and many more

Here’s the original painting about the DEEP hand of welcome

What a wonderful booklet and support! Well done all who helped make it.
The key to living with dementia is to learn what gives you happiness and a smile, and then work out how to keep or start doing that.
I note the change in tone and authorial voice.

It feels like the DEEP way https://twitter.com/alzsocdemvoice/status/1438049955017461763

.@DementiaUK @PathwaysBfd @Innov_Dementia @ is the best piece of work i've seen in a long time. ofcourse! who created it? the clue is in the title! It's time for people with dementia to take back ownership... of everything!

"Governments confuse people by giving then information. You get so much info, you can’t make heads or tails of it. So I only have 1 question: What should a #NationalCareService look like for people living with #Dementia”-Ron @rcolemanvoices #DementiaTakesControl Deepness 100/6000

Loved this quote from Anthony Hopkins at @Innov_Dementia 's DEEP newsletter #DEEPfacGathering
