Life Stories of Dementia Sufferers Told With Their Own Photos | Documentary Idea

by Anne Forrest

I have compiled DVDs: combining clients' own photos, 2 dimensional memorabilia and their choice of music. Here is my documentary idea capture the life stories of dementia sufferers.

1) Visiting the client in their own home to discuss the stories they want told, scanning the memorabilia

2) Delivering the finished product and seeing their faces light up - even beholding miraculous improvements - "awakenings"

3) Will they have long term impact - improve memory loss, help carers by reminding the sufferer of normal activities, quickly informing professionals of the client's true character?

I have witnessed remarkable improvements utilising these Musical Life Stories and believe it would make good, informative TV with an upbeat theme!

I am sure the public will be interested in this new and positive "take" on dementia sufferers, their carers and the people who work with them.

A very interesting idea. This concept sounds as if it has been thought through with the sufferer in mind. Would certainly recommend.

This is a fascinating topic. Dementia seems like such a heart breaking situation. There must be thousands of fascinating stories -- real lives that have been impacted. This is definitely a topic rich in material for a documentary.
