Hearing loss and dementia

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has published Dementia friendly communities: supporting learning and outreach with the deaf community.  This report aims to inform the development of policy and practice in relation to dementia awareness and information models in the Deaf community and with people with hearing loss. These approaches challenge misconceptions and provide signposting for appropriate information and support. The report considers and provides next steps on best practice models based on a pilot project with Alzheimer’s Society and BDA.
