In this video, "Voice of Dementia", see real people in a dementia support-group talk about their lives, their diagnosis and the importance of being heard.
There can be an assumption that when a person receives a diagnosis of dementia that they somehow become incapable of having a say about their lives and about the services they receive.
The film begs the question - whey are these people marginalised when it comes to decisions about their lives, and what can we do to change this?
The film is an outcome from a larger CLAHRC SY project about exploring how people with dementia could be better involved in service feedback, evaluation and planning.
This is a collaborative project with Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust and the Alzheimer's Society Sheffield. The project is part of the CLAHRC SY Translating Knowledge into Action theme.
