Living with Dementia in Dorset 

A video of people with dementia and carers talking about what it means to live well with dementia in Dorset. The video challenges potential gaps in perceptions and understanding about dementia, promoting an inclusive and supportive society for people affected by dementia. There is also a link to the attitudes to dementia survey (please click here to take part) which aims to look at people’s experience to establish whether watching this video has started to change or reinforce existing attitudes towards dementia issues.
