Living Well With Dementia




Bringing People Together

Deepness Dementia Media is a platform that gives people tools for living well with dementia designed collaboratively with those with dementia leading the process. By coming together in a supportive, energetic common space that makes a huge difference to the wellbeing of those going through dementia. As opposed to providing a cure, our goal is to help people become autonomous and get the most out of life. We bring you a series of innovative projects – such as our radio station, online education courses, and much more – that use technology and music in a way that keeps people connected and stimulated. By bringing people into a community with those who have lived experience, family members, young carers, friends, workers, and educators, Deepness Dementia Media provides the perfect platform for living well with dementia.
Get in touch with Deepness Dementia Media, based in the Isle of Lewis, to find out more about our education and radio service.





What is Deepness Dementia Media?

Deepness Dementia Media aims to achieve a set of outcomes that can be summed up by the following terms:


Autonomy not only describes one of our core values but is also what we strive for, above anything, whether we are people with cognitive impairments, family members, carers or workers.



One of our main beliefs is that meaningful activity serves as an essential component of living well with dementia. Activity keeps the mind active and provides motivation to people on a daily basis. All activities in our projects are done within a safe environment and with plenty of support.


Our projects aim to foster greater understanding of the impact that dementia has on the stakeholders involved – not just those living with dementia but also their families, carers, the workforce, and the wider public. We hope to foster greater understanding through the use of a narrative approach to co-producing our courses and other projects.


Coming together, working together, being creative together and learning together gives us strength and minimises the deficits that we have as individuals. This is an outcome that we have already seen within our projects and continue to bring to life in our ventures.


One of the most important outcomes that we experience in our projects is that, through bringing people together in a collaborative space, original thinking is developed in a way that can be applied to the lives of people living with dementia.


We strive to challenge the discrimination and stigma that exists inside and outside of the dementia community. By working together to produce our online courses and radio shows many of the common perceptions held by stakeholder groups are challenged, which in turn promotes change that benefits all.


We help people going through the process of dementia and their families to have a clear structure in their lives. Our courses, radio shows and other projects aim at living well with dementia through increased autonomy, promoting better relationships, developing a stronger understanding, and growing in a co-productive way. These factors are fundamental for encouraging healthy order in people's lives.


Creating meaning in our lives is common to all people but even more so for those experiencing dementia along with their family and friends. Finding meaning leads to the discovery of purpose. Through our Deepness Dementia Radio, Dementia Recovery College and other projects we strive to enable people to achieve a sense of purpose, which in turn leads to living well with dementia.


When we speak of youthfulness, we are not talking about rediscovering our youth, but rather learning to renew ourselves in the present. This is how we keep our organisation fresh, ensuring that leadership is constantly answerable to the membership, which is why all Deepness Dementia Media Directors will change over a six-year period. Constant renewal is crucial for maintaining the ongoing positive development of our organisation.
