Bay Tree Voices Film Project
Over the summer of 2011, Dementia Studies lecturer Andrea Capstick visited Bay Tree Resource Centre in Moor Allerton, Leeds, in order to involve people with more severe dementia in the education we provide.
A number of interactions were recorded on film with resource centre clients including Shahida, Cath, Tom, Cyril, Shirley and Brian. These film clips have now been incorporated into some of the Dementia Studies modules and are currently being evaluated by students.
This is an important aspect of our Patient and Public Involvement work, and we are grateful to everyone at Bay Tree for their support with it. Terry Wilford, a BSc Dementia Studies student who works at Bay Tree has written about the project on the University’s Community Engagement website.
