Living and Learning with Dementia

The Scottish Dementia Working Group was awarded £4,500 funding from the Life Changes Trust to produce a short film which aims to inspire others living with dementia to learn new skills and make friends.

The film features three men - Henry, Pat and Geordie - who all have different types of dementia, and who share learning from an IT course in which they participated.

The film demonstrates iPad/tablet skills that viewers can try and the chaps discuss the importance of friendships and socialising for people living with dementia.

There is also discussion around different types of dementia and how to challenge stereotypes about dementia.

Henry, Pat and Geordie were all involved in the production planning, filming, sound recording and editing of the film, supported by a small video production team from the Untold Motion Picture Company.
