About Dementia Interpreters

The Interpreter Forum and the Dementia Dictionary

The Dementia Interpreter forum drives the content of the dictionary. It is a fantastic way to utilise the experience of qualified Dementia Interpreters, both professional and community based to be able to work together to translate the 'Language of Dementia'. The forum is where the discussions start as to what may be happening, what causes such behaviours, etc - working together they can decide upon a defined translation that will be published in the Dementia Dictionary. It’s thanks to committed Dementia Interpreters with such experience and our unique voting system that we can ensure definitions are as reliable as possible and will continue to develop over time.
