New film raises awareness of dementia in the African Caribbean community
Working with experts from across the system, Health Education England (HEE) has developed ‘Finding Patience’, a new film looking at the experience of dementia amongst African Caribbean families.
Growing evidence suggests that people from the African Caribbean community may be more prone to the risk factors for developing vascular dementia, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes.
‘Finding Patience’ opens the door for health and care professionals to start talking about cultural sensitivities that may result in a reluctance to come forward and talk about dementia concerns. It aims to encourage health and care professionals to break down barriers in order to reach people who may otherwise go undiagnosed or struggle in isolation to provide care within family units.
Aligning to tier 1 dementia training, ‘Finding Patience’ supports a culturally appropriate approach to the dementia pathway, supporting better awareness, early diagnosis and improved person centred care.

Teabags in the Fridge: Learning Resources
CCG’s and LA commissioners within the Yorkshire and Humber identified the need for a video resource to demonstrate the experience of the family carers for people with dementia. The Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Clinical Network funded the development of the video resource which is now available and free to download from www.dementiacarer.net.
The films have been developed by Arc Research and Consultancy Ltd and have been based on information gathered from carer interviews carried out as part of the development of dementiacarer.net which was a collaborative project funded by several CCG’s in South Yorkshire. Drama materials alongside clips of real carers talking about what helps them with difficult issues come out in the films. In addition there are session plans for people to download.
