Giving Voice for people with dementia
The RCSLT launched the dementia campaign in 2014 to raise awareness of the communication, eating, drinking and swallowing problems experienced by people with dementia.
Speech and language therapists (SLTs) support people with dementia to live well by assessing their needs and delivering direct interventions to support communication, and safe eating, drinking and swallowing. SLTs also support and train other professionals to recognise dementia-related symptoms and to support each person as an individual.
We have developed these resources during the campaign to highlight the needs of people with dementia and the contribution of speech and language therapists in dementia care.
