Sea Hero Quest Update

The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), the principle Charity in the UK for people affected by sight loss at the end of last week created a new resource site for professionals that looks at Dementia and Sight loss.   The site includes a set of ten top tip cards which cover some handy hints for supporting people living with dementia and sight loss amongst a host of other resources. You can find them at Dementia and Sight Loss

This week it was also reported that Sea Hero Quest, a mobile phone game played by 2.4 million people has become the largest dementia study in history, generating the equivalent of 9,400 years of lab-based research!
