Celebrate love this Valentine’s Day!

Keeping love stories alive – as it’s St Valentine’s Day, we’re encouraging you to talk about love!

Ask your parents and grandparents about their love stories and share them with us.

Your support means we can help more people living with dementia and their families to celebrate love together.

My Life Films goes to Brighton

My Life Films visits Brighton!

Big thank you to Hop Stop and Impact Initiatives for having us and we are looking forward to make some brilliant films with you soon thanks to the Margaret Fisher Charitable Trust.

Through working with private and public funding to develop and manage our services, Impact Initiatives has been key to helping Sussex people live healthy and fulfilling lives for 40 years. Their services include supported housing, advocacy, support for young people, cafes, centers and activities for people aged 50+, employment support and out-of-school activities.

Every Friday they organise Dementia cafes and activities like the one that our team have just participated in.

Dementia Care Congress

The UK Dementia Congress, the most well-loved annual dementia-focused event in the UK and the whole of Europe, returns again. And My Life Films cannot miss it. As always the congress will offer an exciting mix of plenary sessions, parallel sessions, interactive workshops, symposia, posters, early bird sessions, special events and installations.

This year the congress will take place in Doncaster and we’re heading there now. If you’re there come and say hello #dementia #exhibitionstand @JDementiaCare.

Virtual Reality

We have some exciting projects coming up at My Life Films involving virtual reality.

We are developing for our Stars a virtual walk around their own houses at 360 degree. They will be able to enter all the rooms just with the touch of a button, zoom in to see their favourite spots of a room, family pictures or paintings. This will allow people living with dementia to take their homes with them wherever they go and secure happy memories about the places.

Our first trial has just been finished and our amazing Star loves it!
