Hearing from people living with dementia

Throughout my Occupational Therapy career, listening to people’s stories has always been the starting point for our work together. It gives an insight into what really matters, highlights strengths, motivations and fears. We all have a need to be heard and understood.

I feel so lucky to have shared time and laughter with the wonderful people in these films, and they’ve taught me so much about dementia and living a full life.
