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.


The Centre would like to thank the experts by experience who worked with us on the development of this module. Without your continued support this would not have been possible! We are immensely proud of the work we do together & this award is for you all! Thank you & well done!

🗣️ Almost two thirds of people in destitution live with a chronic health condition or disability. Cutting people’s eligibility for benefits won't help.

The PM's speech was an irresponsible war of words on people who already aren’t getting enough support.

And this is why it remains such a tactical framing error to repeatedly say unpaid carers 'save' the State £billions or that they are the 'bedrock' of the 'social care system'. They are people being abandoned and exploited at huge personal cost. It's nothing to celebrate.

Do you want to work with us to shift the narrative around care and support❓

We're working with @bryonyshannon to update our Jargon Buster and flag words we feel don't belong in a human approach to care and support. That's where you come in... 1/2

I original set a very ambitious target of 100 Researchers, and we're currently on 89!

What an incredible community you are!

12 hours left to get to 100.

Philly may have retired from her time with us - but she's still active. Give her a #FridayFollow
