My Life Films is a charity that uses personalised filmmaking to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. Our vision is a world where the lives of people with dementia aren’t defined by their illness.
We create films that tell the life stories of people with dementia using their photos, favourite music and filmed interviews, and for every person, we make two films that have different impacts.
Our 30-minute Life Story Film provides people with dementia with a lasting form of reminiscence therapy that improves their self-esteem and boosts their wellbeing. Our five-minute Care Film gives their care workers a way to get to know them quickly, helping them to communicate effectively and enhancing person-centred care.
Our filmmaking process brings together family and friends to share stories and capture memories of the person for generations to come, bringing comfort to loved ones in a difficult time.
So far, we’ve made films for over 250 people with dementia and our impact was proven in a clinical trial by the NHS in 2018. We were awarded National Dementia Care Product of the Year in 2016, and after working with us, Hampshire County Council concluded, “in an ideal world, everybody living with dementia should have access to a tool such as this”.
