Going Home. A Prize Winning Video on Dementia
In 2009 a short video was produced by Vinn Bay and Tee Boon Leng. The video is about an elderly lady that has early stages of dementia, and her families anguish when she goes missing whilst visiting the shops to buy her granddaughter food. The film won a video competition as part of the ADI (Alzheimer’s Disease International) conference.
This video on dementia highlights the confused state a person may suffer from. Even when the person is in familiar surroundings. It also highlights that simple tasks such as switching a kettle on can lead to confusion in a person with the condition.
