"UNDERSTANDING DEMENTIA FILM"
"This is the story of five carers. Ordinary people, from very different backgrounds, who found themselves in the position of carer of a husband, wife, brother, sister, father or mother who has developed dementia. They talk about the desperate position they found themselves in – how their once certain life paths were turned upside down as they had to cope, often with little or no help, with being entirely responsible for the every need of their loved-ones who were increasingly unable to look after themselves. They talk of the sadness and frustration which accompanies this disease. Of the often erratic and unpredictable behaviour of the sufferers, of their guilt at rising feelings of resentment – of their sadness as they watch a loved-one ‘disappear’ bit by bit. Of their fear of the future." source:http://understandingdementiafilm.wordpress.com
