YoungDementia UK is launching three films to help educate and inform people about young onset dementia. We hope our Adapt films will be of particular use and interest to people who have been newly diagnosed and those who support them.
The first three films in the collection feature people affected by the condition discussing – Being a parent, Employment and keeping active and Who and how to tell:
Adapt – Being a parent features people affected by young onset dementia discussing how they shared the news of their diagnosis with their children, how they reacted and the impact the diagnosis has had on their family relationships.
Adapt – Who & how to tell features people affected by young onset dementia discussing how they shared the news of their diagnosis with family and friends. They talk about how people reacted to the news and share advice for others in a similar situation.
Adapt – Employment & keeping active features people affected by young onset dementia discussing how the condition had an impact on their working lives and what they do now to keep active and engaged.
The films were funded by DEEP and the Shanly Foundation and are available for use by anyone who would like to share them, particularly at training courses, events and conferences.
