Alzheimer's Society is pleased to present Voices from the shadows as an educational resource, featuring the stories of people with dementia and their carers. In a series of powerful monologues, their written accounts are brought to life and we are given an insight into the experience of living with dementia. The simple, thought-provoking style of these accounts aims to prompt further discussion and increase awareness and understanding. These stories have come from a variety of sources reflecting a range of experiences. They have been reduced in length, but are all in the original words of the writers or speakers. The stories are performed by actors Godfrey Jackman and Pam Lyne. Format: The training package comprises a DVD and a CD-ROM containing all facilitators' notes and can be used for awareness and education in a number of ways. The accompanying notes are based upon the Society's interpretation of the films and their relevance to the support of people with dementia and their carers.

Key features: 

  • Series of powerful monologues that give an insight into the experience of living with dementia.
  • Comprises a DVD and  CD-ROM containing all facilitators' notes and can be used for awareness and education in a number of ways.   

Choosing the right product

People react differently to different products. For example, one person might find it helpful to have a recorded message that plays when they open the front door, reminding them to take their keys, while another person might find this confusing. Some people may also be wary of trying new things or find it difficult to learn new skills. Choosing the right product is therefore not always an easy task. The products you purchase should suit the individual and their situation.
