Love, Loss & Laughter - Living with Dementia

A filmmaker's devotion to her grandmother, who has been living with dementia for 15 years, has been the inspiration behind a film that shares the story of the international photographic exhibition, Love, Loss and Laughter: Seeing Dementia Differently.

Corinne Maunder, Producer, Fire Films Australia, said the Love, Loss and Laughter exhibition presented an ideal opportunity to create a meaningful piece about dementia.

As an entry in the inaugural Reel Health International Health Short Film Festival, the film explores the messages behind the photos that are currently on a six month tour in Australia.

"While making the film I learnt that even though dementia is a condition that people live with, it doesn't mean a person should be isolated from the everyday activities that they can still enjoy in so many ways. The project made me appreciate even more, the time that I have with my grandmother and my mother and aunt's unswerving dedication as carers," Ms Maunder said.

Charlotte's Story

Stories of yesterday

This is a song that I have dedicated to my Nan Elizabeth Johnson.

She is 86 and living with Alzheimer’s disease.

I wrote this song after seeing her one afternoon - her memory was playing up especially bad this particular time and it was difficult to have a continuous conversation. But she was content to sit in her back garden as she always does, listening to the radio and telling me about the history of Newcastle. She loves her back garden often calling it her beautiful lounge room. I guess I wrote it to show people how I see her and the changes her Alzheimer’s has brought on.

She has a beautiful family and a long life full of wonderful stories. Even though she might forget all of that one day, I don't want other people to forget her.
