Show your commitment

Dementia Words Matter is a DEEP Guide, written by people with dementia, that sets out the words and descriptions of dementia that we would prefer are avoided. We recognise that some quite dramatic words and descriptions can be justifiable when used to create a good story and a sense of urgency. On these occasions, we hope that evocative language is used thoughtfully and with consideration.

If you want to sign up your organisation to commit to follow the guidance please complete the sign up form.
