Words for a Journey

Words for a Journey – The Art of Being with Dementia, which collects knowledge on how to live well when you or a family member is diagnosed with dementia.
This project is the result of collaborative work between associate professor Takashi Iba and the students at the Iba Laboratory with corporate members of the Dementia Friendly Japan Initiative including Center for Global Communications at International University of Japan (GLOCOM), Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., KOKUYO S&T Co., Ltd., and Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd..
This organization challenges the problems associated with dementia as a team that extends beyond just medical and welfare studies. The aim for this project is to spread and share the positive and practical wisdom of the people who live with the disease, so those who are newly met with dementia can learn and be encouraged from them. Also, the project hopes to start a society – wide dialogue about Dementia.
