Film on reality of living with dementia

Co-created by people affected by dementia, a new film released by the IDEAL research project focuses on the importance of effective communication around dementia.  Titled “The World Turned Upside Down,” it looks at the reality of living with dementia and caring for someone with the condition through a dramatic composition.  People affected by dementia were involved in creating the drama, which explores scenarios at different points of characters’ experiences with dementia from diagnosis and sharing the diagnosis with family to caring for a loved one with dementia.
