Two researchers from the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology (RAT) Research Group , Becky Field and Sarah Smith went to the UK premiere of the documentary film "Alive Inside", shown as part of the Sheffield SENSORIA music/film/digital festival. It was moving documentary about the power of music to help people with dementia. We really enjoyed watching it, as well as discussing our reflections afterwards, about some questions it brought up for us as researchers in the field of dementia. It's well worth watching!
Prior to the film, an open public meeting of the 'Annual Meeting of the Alzheimer Research UK Network Yorkshire Branch' was held. Professor Gail Mountain, Chair in Health Services Research RAT Group spoke about ‘Living well with dementia’ at this meeting alongside other speakers and colleagues from the University of Sheffield, Professor Annalena Venneri, Professor Pual Ince and Dr Daniel Blackburn.
