We Need to Talk About Dementia

A film about what happens when someone is diagnosed with dementia
and has to go to stay in a care home.

In this short film we meet a woman who has moved to a new apartment, after her husband has gone to live in a care home. She’s having a spare room redecorated. The friendly painter who is doing the work asks her about what’s been happening. She explains how her husband was diagnosed with dementia and they had to sell their house to pay for his care. As the story unfolds, experts provide background information on some of the issues that arise. Don’t have time to watch the whole film? Choose from the video selection on the right.
