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!
