UWS Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice and Alzheimer Scotland featured in BBC documentary “Beti and David: Lost for Words.”
Dr Margaret Brown, Senior Lecturer and Depute Director for Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at UWS said:
“The team were involved in the production of this moving documentary when Beti George visited our University to talk about the good practice in Scotland. She interviewed carers and staff from the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice and Alzheimer Scotland, who appeared in the documentary. The resulting film is the story of Beti and her late partner David Parry-Jones, a broadcaster known as the ‘Voice of Welsh Rugby’. The film shows both of them facing his journey with dementia and Beti’s efforts to start a ‘revolution in dementia care’ in Wales, informed by some of her experiences with the Scottish team.”
The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at UWS provides a high quality environment for applied research, education and enterprise. It is a centre of excellence, advancing dementia policy and practice through education and applied research in Scotland and beyond.
