Road sign saying passing place

Peter Woods of HexhamTV has made a film with a group of carers from Amble who are looking after their partners with dementia.

The film is called ‘A Space at the Table’ because the space at the table that the person living with dementia would normally fill is gradually fading away with far reaching implications for each person living with dementia and also for their partners.

The film which lasts for an hour and 16 minutes is very personal and powerful and comes with a warning that it is not suitable to be shown to those living with dementia, those under 16 or to people who may be adversely affected by seeing its contents

With the kind support of Tynedale Dementia Action Group and The Forum Cinema, Hexham, Peter’s film is now being shown during Dementia Action Week 2019, on Wednesday 22 May, to highlight the honest and truthful experience of carers of partners living with dementia in Northumberland..

In the future Peter hopes the film will be shown widely to health professionals and to a wider audience so the needs of carers in this situation can be properly understood.

Anyone wanting to use Peter’s film within their organisation can be sent a copy in return for a donation to the work of Dry Water Arts and The Curiosity Cafe in Amble.

Hexhamtv can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
