Intouch : In Touch Autumn 2014
4 IN TOUCH AUTUMN 2014 The AlzNSW animated series, My Grandmum, My Papu, My Grandpa and Me, tells the experience of Ezekiel, aged six, Bibi, nine and Julia, 11, who each have a grandparent living with dementia. The CEO of AlzNSW, The Hon. John Watkins, said the aim of the series is to start a conversation among families living with dementia, to help children better understand what changes may be happening to their grandparent. "This age group, while not the primary carers of a person with dementia, are still affected by the condition and it's important to give them a voice, " John said. "We hope these animations will encourage families to talk more about dementia, about how the condition may be affecting their grandparent and how they relate to their grandchild. " AlzNSW worked with digital production house Why Documentaries to make the series, which was animated by Nick Davlouros. My Grandmum, My Papu, My Grandpa and Me is available at Alzheimer's Australia's new online resource hub at: W: www.dementiadaily.org.au NEWS GUEST SPEAKERS RACHAEL LITHERLAND AlzNSW welcomes UK dementia consultant Rachael Litherland in April.
