Life is for Living Video
Life is for Living is a 7 minute film produced pre-lockdown by the arts group People Express in partnership with Amber Valley Dementia Peer Support Group. It was funded by Public Health through the Health & Wellbeing Partnership in Amber Valley & features people with dementia & their carers talking about their experiences of living with dementia.
The main aim of the project is to enable the group to ‘gift’ their personal stories, experiences, learning, passions and belief that ‘life is for living’ to inform & support other people affected by dementia; including Carers, people newly diagnosed and those pre-diagnosis.
It can be viewed on the Derbyshire County Council youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZQtIq7EcPc
The project was halted because of lockdown but it’s hoped that it can be continued with some socially distanced filming in the future, possibly in gardens & parks.
