Living With Dementia: Chris's Story
In a powerful, multi-textured documentary filmed over eighteen months, one family reveals what life with dementia is really like - behind closed doors. Using CCTV cameras, video diaries and an immersive film crew, we follow 54-year-old Chris Roberts as he, his wife Jayne and daughter Kate come to terms with his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. From choosing a care home and writing a living will, to getting lost in his own house and not recognising his family, Chris chronicles his changing life as his independence slips away. He is beset by frustration - yet his remarkable insight allows us into his world.
