Film and Blog on NHSGG web site - Experiences of Dementia / Tommy Whitelaw


a wee link to my blog and film on the NHSGG internal website 

with thanks to the community engagement, team 


Tommy Whitelaw, from Glasgow WAS  a full-time carer for his mother who has vascular dementia for the last 5 years. Through this Tommy has became a campaigner raising awareness of the issues surrounding dementia. Tommy has produced a short film which provides an insight into the issues and challenges faced with those coping with Dementia and those caring for those with Dementia.  You can view the film by clicking the link below (requires Flash player).
Tommy continues to speak to carers groups, as well as key decision-makers who have influence over the lives of people affected by dementia. He is still gathering experiences, to make sure they are shared with those who can make life better for carers.
If you care for someone with dementia and would like to send a letter, you can:
