This site is very much a democratic learning experience, and we need to work together to build the body of information available. Its success depends on people in the dementia community posting information and engaging in discussion. You can to post information in the form of documents, links, video, podcasts and blog commentary on this page. You can also have a dialogue with other people in the sector by setting up a discussion group.
