Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People have been working alongside Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service to develop a BSL Factsheet to enable Deaf BSL users to better understand what Dementia is, as well as the support available to them.

A huge thanks to the Deaf BSL users who took part in our recent Deaf and Dementia information sessions, because without your input these issues may not have been identified. The information gathered at these sessions also led to the following work being undertaken:
Two exceptionally pleasant and helpful people – a pleasure to meet and my new doorbell is a great help. Thank you very much.
…I was very satisfied with the service. The two staff were professional and easy to communicate with. They were able to explain everything clearly and quickly gave me the replacement equipment.
