Courageous conversations
Alzheimer's Australia NSW
'My story hasn’t ended…just the ending has changed'. Take a look at these Courageous Conversations featuring people with dementia."
Courageous Conversations, a new short film series developed by Alzheimer’s Australia NSW, features people living with dementia talking candidly about what people should know about the condition, along with the good and bad that comes with living with dementia.
This includes loneliness as friends no longer visit, a misconception that dementia is contagious, and memory loss. They also talk about the unexpected positive things that have happened following their diagnosis, including the people that have come forward offering help and learning their self-worth.
