Our films

We are beginning to extend our digital profile and are currently able to offer the following films,
developed to support the LondonADASS Annual Carer Festival via Zoom, September 2020.

I still feel guilty

An honest look at the feelings of guilt felt by a carer. Joan Marshall looked after her husband Tom for 5 years before having to put him in a Care Home. He died 9 months later just before the COVID 19 lockdown. In this film, Joan offers an honest insight into her life, hoping to connect with other carers experiencing similar feelings.

Joan ends the film saying “I’m learning to let these feelings go. Sometimes I got it right, sometimes I got it wrong, but I’m only human. I did the best I could and you can’t ask for more than that. Carers are the unsung heroes in this world. Give yourself a break, you’re amazing and stronger than you know.”

What do you do with a diagnosis of dementia?

This film is a video diary of “Grandma” who has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. We see the journey of dementia through her eyes, the concern she has for her family and her confusion and fight to orientate herself within the world. The diary shows the cognitive, physical & verbal decline of Grandma, hard hitting and filled with love.

The character of Grandma is taken from the play “Grandma Remember Me? which explores dementia from a young child’s perspective. This film provided an opportunity to look further into Grandmas mind, revealing thoughts & feelings she otherwise may not have shared.

Grandma Remember Me?

Grandma Remember Me? is written from the perspective of a young child. Lilly whose grandma develops Alzheimer’s. It explores their changing relationship from Lilly’s initial recognition that there is something wrong with her grandma, through the unfolding challenges and final acceptance and understanding of the disease. It explores the wider impact on family, the need for support and understanding within our communities and the importance of memories and relationships within our lives and how to keep and treasure them. “It is a piece of high quality theatre, very powerful, realistic and deeply moving.

What do you see?

(2.40 mins)
What Do You See? looks at the later stages of dementia, exploring issues around care homes, leadership, staff motivation and the importance of life histories. It also challenges taboos around death. The play follows the next stage of dementia, exploring issues around care homes and end of life palliative care. It looks at the importance of life histories within person centred care, challenges taboos around death and shows the possibility of choice and the empowerment advance care planning brings. It takes good leadership to impact change, and as important as it is to create a positive environment and culture of care for residents, it is equally important to create an environment that staff want to work in.

"I will feel better able to encourage this in the people
I meet facing challenges and
adapting to a diagnosis of dementia.”

An interactive training workshop

Forum theatre combines both performance and audience engagement.
We develop bespoke scripts around identified need and through an interactive process, engage the audience to find positive solutions.

Forum pieces have included:

  • The impact of dementia within faith
  • Dementia in a ward setting
  • Challenges faced by hospitals
  • Advocacy within dementia
  • Challenges faced by carers

An external facilitator manages the process and humour is often used to break down barriers. It is a powerful training tool which impacts long term change.

“The workshop was great – eye opening.
It will make me think more about my people’s backgrounds.”

Az2B offers a variety of bespoke workshops to support
Arts in Health, Education & Training.

In December 2019 Az2B ran workshops for REACH Cornwall as part of a full days training around dementia.

REACH Cornwall is an initiative for the social care and health sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  The project, officially titled the Excellence in Health and Care Skills Group, is part-funded by the European Social Fund and delivered by Truro and Penwith College.  As an employer-led forum, REACH Cornwall offers those working across the sector the opportunity to:

  • network
  • work collaboratively to identify skills shortages and develop tailored training packages
  • discuss wider issues (e.g. recruitment and retention) and possible solutions, and ultimately
  • Raise Excellence and Aspiration in Care and Health
