Experience Greater Moments

Helping people living with dementia to make the most of the moments that matter.

We have been working with Social Sense and Hitch to develop “Greater Moments” to measure in real time the experience of people affected by dementia to inform and enable improvements required locally and across Greater Manchester.

Our aim is to create something that focusses not on the dementia, but the person and those around them. We want to capture everything that is positive, for example friendships and achievements alongside thoughts, feelings and concerns. People living with dementia tell us the importance of positive experiences of using local services, for example transport, shops and interactions with GPs and other professionals.

Through the Greater Moments platform (formerly Lived Experience Barometer) we have a real opportunity to better understand and improve these experiences across Greater Manchester.

Can you spare 1 hour a week?

We’re looking for people who are passionate about capturing the lived experience of people affected by dementia in Greater Manchester and who can promote and drive forward the user engagement of the project.
