4 audio resources for dementia stories and information
From the February / March 2018 issue of our magazine, we highlight resources for dementia information and stories in formats you can listen to.
1. About dementia
There are audio versions of many Alzheimer’s Society factsheets as well as podcasts on a range of topics. You can also listen online to an audio version of The dementia guide, for anyone recently diagnosed with the condition, or you can order a CD version.
