  2. Q&A: Dementia Together Magazine - Wed 25 April, 4-5pm

    Do you have any questions about Dementia together, previously known as Living with dementia magazine? Maybe you'd like to know how they worked with people affected by dementia to come up with the magazine's new name, or how they decide on the articles to publish each issue? Danny and Gareth from the magazine team will be on hand to answer your questions in this thread on Wednesday 25 April between 4-5pm.

    Feel free to post any questions between now and then, and we'll answer them next Wednesday.
