Dementia Together magazine features the latest news, features, tips and advice for carers and people with dementia, book reviews, updates on dementia research and articles highlighting good practice in dementia care, plus readers' letters.
The latest issue has been co-produced with people affected by dementia. A panel including both former carers and people with a dementia diagnosis themselves came together to produce this special issue of the Dementia Together magazine.

A special thank you to our very own volunteer moderator @LynneMcV for all the hard work you've put into this, and everything you've been involved with behind the scenes. From all of us in the team, you should be incredibly proud of everything you've done for this special issue!
