Lifting the Cloud (Derby)

The group wanted to create a booklet that could help anyone with dementia who was visiting Derby as a tourist. This would be a guide to attractions and any difficulties they may incur which could impact their visit.

The group created a questionnaire which highlighted significant areas that could possibly be challenging for a person with dementia. Some people filled in the questionnaire during their visit, others took it home and filled it in later. At the end of a visit the group also had a discussion about their experiences.

All of these results informed the development of a new booklet: ‘Derby Visitors Attractions: through the eyes of a person living with dementia’. You can read the booklet here.
