Dementia Day to Day


Dementia Day-to-Day is a new joint initiative led by the Institute of Mental Health and the School of English. It takes the form of a unique series of blogs - mainly online diaries and reflective pieces - that is integrated into the existing IDEA website.

We've assembled a panel of authors from all walks of life, each with their own experience of, and interest in, dementia to explore the subject of ageing and wellbeing from as many angles as possible.

The blogs are updated regularly and are often topical, responding to events in the news, developments in research, and so on. But they are not exclusively so. Here you’ll also find accounts by people with dementia, their carers, friends and family members – all of whom describe their day-to-day experiences and stories.

Dementia Day-to-Day is an ever-expanding resource. Accordingly we welcome blogs from new authors. If you would like to contribute, please do contact us by emailing us. For more information visit:
