However, the support needs of individuals who fall into both…

    Posted by Jill Anderson on June 5, 2015 at 16:30 0 Comments

It features the voice of a woman who has the condition, and the viewer gets a view of life from her perspective. Some of the things she sees are familiar, but, at other times, she becomes confused. For instance, at one point, the woman forgets that she’s gone to bed. At other times, she becomes agitated. She also talks about how she’s coping with the condition. Viewing the film you will…
