An extraordinary documentary about living with dementia.
Revolutionizing Dementia Care, a groundbreaking documentary produced by Community Idea Stations, a PBS-affiliate, in partnership with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), portrays how person- and relationship-centered practices greatly enhance the lives of individuals living with dementia. These caring practices—often simple accommodations that can be implemented at home or in a care setting—offer an increased sense of purpose, self-worth, and joy to those living with dementia.
By focusing on a person’s abilities, rather than dementia-related impairments, people living with dementia are able to live full, meaningful lives. “By seeing our strengths, we are empowered. It enriches our lives. This is the true meaning of person-centered care,” notes DAA Advisory Board member, Brian LeBlanc, who is the film’s narrator.
A huge thank you to the Dementia Action Alliance for their partnership and support in helping us create this documentary. Everyone there is extremely passionate in making a difference for those living with dementia, their families and all involved. Karen Love has been a great resource and a friend. We truly appreciate all she has done to connect us with so many wonderful people doing great things. Thank you, Karen.
