What’s it like living with dementia and want to plan ahead? A film by Tharin Phenwan

 

Postgraduate Researcher Tharin Phenwan, from the School of Health Sciences, has filmed a short monologue as part of his research output for the study ‘Advance Care Planning initiation and transformation in home-dwelling people with dementia’.

The monologue is a composite narrative of people with dementia, revealing the challenges people with dementia face when creating their Advance Care Planning and in their daily lives. All parts of the monologue are verbatim quotes from people with dementia, which Tharin collected during an interview process for the study. Watch the full film below
