Children's TV programme about dementia

A new episode of CBBC programme 'My Life', Mr Alzheimers and Me, helps children understand how their grandparents’ dementia can affect personality and behaviour.  You can watch the show online here.

The TV programme My Life: Mr Alzheimers and Me explores dementia through the eyes of three children. Sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting, the half-hour programme never ducks the truth, but it is surprisingly positive, largely because of the youngsters’ enthusiasm for life and obvious love of their grandparents. Read more about the programme here, and watch a clip of the show.

Mr Alzheimers and Me is first shown on CBBC on Wednesday 4 February 2015 at 5.30pm.
