Dementia from the inside

Social Care Institute for Excellence

A new SCIE film takes an innovative approach to what it might feel like to live with dementia. It features the voice of a woman who has the condition, and the viewer gets a view of life from her perspective.

People with dementia:

May interpret things that happen differently to those around them
May have unanticipated periods of lucidity and periods of confusion alike
May sometimes not recognise people or places they know well
May become frustrated with themselves or those who struggle to understand them
May not be able to articulate or communicate their anxieties, fears or frustrations
Live with unpredictability, such as the passage of time
What is the video about?

In this film we find out what it might feel like to live with dementia. Viewers will experience a little of what it is like to find yourself in a world that seems familiar and yet doesn’t always make sense. The incidents pictured in this film and memories recounted are based upon true experiences gathered from people living with dementia
