Support Group Changes People with Dementia

In this video, “Voice of Dementia”, see real people in a dementia support-group talk about their lives, their diagnosis and the importance of being heard. (Video)

There can be an assumption that when a person receives a diagnosis of dementia that they somehow become incapable of having a say about their lives and about the services they receive.

The film asks the question – why are these people marginalized when it comes to decisions about their lives, and what can be done to change this?

The film is an outcome from a larger CLAHRC SY project about exploring how people with dementia could be better involved in service feedback, evaluation and planning.

This is a collaborative project with Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust and the Alzheimer’s Society Sheffield. The project is part of the CLAHRC SY Translating Knowledge into Action theme.

These support groups are hard but helpful.
