The British Deaf Association (BDA) Scotland has launched its first ever user-friendly dementia toolkit, “The Deaf Dementia Journey”, which was created by D/deaf people who are carers, or former carers, and who use British Sign Language (BSL).
The toolkit is for D/deaf people who use BSL and who are living with dementia, as well as their families, carers, and any staff supporting them. It provides tips, advice and support.
BDA Scotland aims for this toolkit to ensure equality of access and services for D/deaf people living with dementia, specifically the right to language and culture.
To download the toolkit, or for further information, please visit the BDA Scotland website.
