Dementia Wellbeing Service seeks community language speakers

Video tapeThe 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 experiencing this.

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 trish.caverly@nhs.net.
