This article presents the communicational specificities of spaces that aim at gathering the voices and experiences from people living with dementia and their carers. This allows focusing on an arrangement that seeks in the same time to involve people with Alzheimer’s disease and to create spaces where the undesirability of their symptoms are renegotiated. In order to do so, the author addresses the practical modalities of those gatherings, the participative norms and the difficulties to meet their standards. He then compares the admissibility of the young onset dementia speeches and the reception work made by the group.
