  • Dementia words matter: Guidelines on language about dementia

    This guidance is for journalists, organisations and communications departments.

    The language we use to talk about dementia influences how people with dementia are viewed and also how they feel about themselves. People with dementia prefer words and descriptions that are accurate, balanced and respectful.
