Dementia Diaries

Dementia DiariesDementia Diaries is a national project that brings together people’s diverse experiences of living with dementia as a series of audio diaries. It serves as a public record and a personal archive that documents the day-to-day lives of people living with dementia, with the aim of prompting a richer dialogue about the varied forms of the condition.

As the use of technology often becomes more difficult for those living with dementia, this project uses 3D printed mobile handsets which are customised to be as simple as possible, allowing us to both record audio diary entries and capture our thoughts and experiences as they occur. These handsets are linked to a dedicated voicemail and as soon as a diary entry is recorded, it is automatically sent via the internet to the editorial team at On Our Radar. The team will then listen to it, transcribe it and curate it for publication.
