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.
