Urdu/Punjabi dementia awareness resource video
MILAN (Senior Welfare Organisation) Ltd was awarded £4880 of funding from the Life Changes Trust to produce an Urdu/Punjabi dementia awareness resource video.
Dementia is increasing within the South Asian communities and it is vital to have information to cope with the changes and issues that come with dementia. Through this film we learn more about dementia, including the importance of seeking medical help straight away, so that a proper diagnosis can be made and the correct treatment plan can be given.
People with dementia and their unpaid carers/families were supported to create this film which highlights major concerns, myths and the difficulties faced by unpaid carers.
The film also provides people with valuable advice and an insight into living with dementia.
MILAN (Senior Welfare Organisation) Ltd published the film on the South Asian TV channel C44, MILAN website and MILAN Facebook page. 100 USB copies of the film will also be distributed.
