“Living Beyond Dementia”
All too often individuals diagnosed with dementia hear from their doctors “There is not anything we can do,” or “Put your affairs in order and come back in six months”.
This compelling video, produced, directed, filmed and edited all by individuals living with dementia, shares personal stories about how traumatic those words can be and that helpful information and encouragement are needed instead.
Every once in a while something comes along that has the power to stop us in our tracks. The Person-Centered Matters video about individuals living with dementia and those who care about them has such a power. The story is beautifully told through the voices of five people living with dementia and care partners.
