During a discussion on Twitter at a weekly chat (#AlzChat) for carers and those living with dementia someone asked if there was a list of theatre and radio plays, television programmes and films about dementia. It started a flurry of suggestions, an offer of help from @AdrianzWall and a list of suggestions from @bethyb1886 and we were off!
With our grateful thanks to all who contributed, tweeted or shared our request for information, and especially to @_nickytaylor, @minghowriter and of course to the moderators of #AlzChat which is a weekly chat on twitter, and well worth joining into for conversations and information invaluable to those caring for someone with dementia. It takes place each Monday at 8pm UK time; search for it using #AlzChat and please do pop in.
West Yorkshire Playhouse have produced a guide and resources about dementia friendly performances which is available on their website.
And now for the list, if you click here it will take you to a document containing all the theatre and radio plays, films and television about dementia.
