Minding the Gap (Season 2): Dementia

In 2023, Radio Televisyen Brunei (RTB) collaborated with Demensia Brunei for the second season of "Minding the Gap", a podcast which is available in RTB’s online platform, RTBGo. On the first season, the podcast episodes focused on mental health broadly, and in the second season we worked with Demensia Brunei to focus on different topics related to dementia. So far, the second season has had over 700 downloads/plays. In our social media channels, we are continuing to promote the second season and we are expecting the number of downloads to continue to increase.

To increase reach, aside from the online platform, once the episodes are fully uploaded, snippets of the podcast will be shared in the radio as promotional and also public service announcement materials. After all, through this collaboration, we wish to deliver health messages from Demensia Brunei, including educating listeners about misconceptions about dementia. The podcast also gives a platform for Demensia Brunei to share their knowledge about dementia, as members are experts in the medical field.

Below are some of the list of topics we have covered:

  • What is Dementia?
  • Communication and Dementia
  • Mental Health of Carer/Family Members.
  • Activities of daily living (ADLs) and dementia.
  • Dementia Friendly Environment?

And others.
