Dementia Awareness Week 2014 – NHS Employers Nursing Times - my Filmed interview

To mark National Dementia Awareness Week which runs from 18 to 24 May, NHS Employers the Nursing Times are working with the Alzheimer’s Society to promote resources available to NHS organisations and the NHS workforce.
As part of this activity, they have specially commissioned a short video of an interview with Dementia Carer Voices’ very own Tommy Whitelaw.

You can get more information here on NHS Employers 
Introducing the film, Jenni Middleton, Editor with the Nursing Times said;
We’ve made this short film to show you some of the experiences of someone who cared for their mum with dementia, and I hope that it gives you a lot of insight and understanding as to what you can do as a healthcare professional or as a member of the public to really help people get through what can be a difficult experience.
This video was made to mark this year’s Dementia Awareness week and I hope that you find it inspiring and moving.
