Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project

Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project logo

The Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project (DEEP) brings together groups of people with dementia from across the UK.

DEEP supports these groups to try to change services and policies that affect the lives of people with dementia.

DEEP has produced guides aiming to support the involvement of people with dementia.

Some are aimed at DEEP groups, others at organisations wanting to work well with people with dementia.

They have all been co-produced with people with dementia and will be regularly updated through the project. Guides include:

-Choosing a meeting space

-Collecting views

-Tips for employers

-Writing dementia-friendly information

Subject Definitions

For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
