Last week I had my first ‘zoom chat’ with Philly Hare from Innovations in Dementia. Zoom is like FaceTime and Skype – just another version.
Philly had asked if I would record one of my Dementia Diaries for the new radio programme called The ‘D’ Word. Each episode is about 30 minutes long and at the end of each episode the presenter plays a recording from Dementia Diaries, introduced by Philly.
The ‘D’ Word is the UK’s only dementia-based radio show. Presenter Pete Hill aims to raise the profile of the condition that affects 50 million across the globe. It can be listened to ‘on demand’ whenever is convenient for you.
Alongside many other guests, projects and topics, the D Word will feature a number of our Dementia Diarists including me and many of my playmates. Each of us simply reads out one of our favourite Diaries at the end of the programme.
The D Word is aired through UK Health Radio, a health information Station with the most in-depth information on the widest range of health and wellness topics – available anywhere today. UK Health Radio is on-air 24/7 and averages over 340 000 unique listeners per month.
You can listen to the D Word here:
Not sure when my one will be aired, but that’s irrelevant really as whichever playmate it is, you can be sure it will be brilliant.
