Alzheimer100 is a project that aims to come up with creative solutions to the challenges presented by dementia.
Alzheimer100 is a part of Designs of the time, a year long project based in the North East exploring how design can make a positive difference to our daily lives.
People with dementia, their carers, service providers and experts in the field will lead this project. These groups will work together to tell their stories and design new services and products.
