Life Story Films

We create Life Story films that bring comfort and hope to people affected by dementia

What it involves

We currently offer two Life Story film packages. The first is a 30-minute film featuring images from family albums, interviews with our ‘star’ and their family members, accompanied by their favourite music tracks. We also edit this to make a shorter Carer film.

The second Life Story package is focused exclusively on the production of a short 5-7min Carer film, providing carers with a personal insight into the person they are caring for. This serves as an innovative care tool; the carer is able to build a more meaningful relationship and provide better person-centred care.

New services on the way

We are developing two further formats for our Life Story films: the first is to take our film format into a mobile app so a short film can be made much more easily by anyone; and the second is to pilot a ‘My Life Story’ activity programme.

Funding for your Life Story film

We have a number of grant-funded programmes, often focused on specific geographic areas, from which we can assign funding for anyone who is keen to have a Life Story film. Where funding is not available, there may be other options, including self-funding.

Our Impact

impact

We have countless stories of the positive impact of our Life Story films and a newly published independent NHS research pilot has shown that when a Life Story film is viewed it triggers positive memories, raises self-esteem and confidence, and improves communication with family members.
