Dementia Wellbeing Service seeks community language speakers
The Dementia Wellbeing Service is
looking for healthcare professionals with expertise in dementia to
take part in a series of community language videos. The service put
out a call for help with the videos in December and is still
seeking individuals to take part.
The service is working alongside Black, Asian & Minority
Ethnic communities across the city to produce videos about dementia
and the services currently available in Bristol to support people
Each of the videos will include short interviews with members of
the community, as well as healthcare professionals with dementia
expertise, and will be recorded in the spoken language of the
community. Currently, the service is considering using six
languages for the videos.
With filming set to take place in early 2017, the Dementia
Wellbeing Service is now looking for health care professionals who
are fluent in, or whose first language is, Somali, Polish, Punjabi,
Urdu, Cantonese or Arabic, to take part.
If you are a GP, nurse, doctor or dementia practitioner with a
background in any of the above communities, please get in touch
with Trish Caverly, community development coordinator, Dementia
Wellbeing Service, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
