This ‘awareness raising’ film is designed to help health and social care staff recognise the importance of the cultural heritage of individuals living with dementia and that such understanding enables high quality, safe, person centred care. Following significant input from experts within the African Caribbean community, I am also pleased that this is considered to be a helpful resource for this community to help raise awareness, reduce some of the stigma surrounding dementia and also encourage those who may have concerns about either themselves or a family member to seek early support.
Further details are included on the website, but if you have any immediate queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Project Team Jan Zietara firstname.lastname@example.org or Dominique Dominique.email@example.com who will be pleased to help.
