    The event is an opportunity for us to share information with our stakeholders and supporters about the projects we are delivering and the outcomes for the health and care workforce and for people with dementia and family carers.

    About the Play ‘Fighting For Life’:

    We want our parents to live happily ever after. It doesn’t always happen that way. Social mobility and the pressures of modern life frequently mean that our elderly parents become more frail and dependent on outside support. When ill-health strikes – and in the case of ‘Fighting for Life’ – motor neurone disease for Jim and dementia for Joan – their middle aged children have the dilemma of how to access the best treatment and care – will their parents be forced to live separately after a 60 year marriage and how will their health issues be monitored? The play is inspired by the Findlay Report – a family case study on the handling of motor neurone disease by UK health and social services. ‘Whatever you do, don’t get this bloody awful disease’ – David Niven actor who developed motor neurone disease.’
