Members who attended the Elders Council Annual General Meeting on 3 July 2014 had the opportunity to view a short film 'Energy and Commitment' showing the Elders Council at work. If you weren’t able to get to the AGM the video has now been uploaded and can be viewed on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w4uWSBmTw0&feature=em-upload_owner#action=share . As we said on the video, it is always difficult to describe succinctly what we do. If you are intrigued by any of the examples of work shown on the video and would like to get more involved, get in touch with us for more information.
The Elders Council is a group of people who are interested in having a say about how to make Newcastle a great city in which to grow old. We do this in a variety of ways - peer research, arts projects, focus groups and regular meetings with service providers and policymakers.
Dementia Friendly Cinema is a project being developed by the Tyneside Cinema. The idea for the project came from the Elders Council who have been thinking about what would make it possible for people with dementia and their carers to enjoy the cultural life of the city.
Tyneside Cinema welcomed the opportunity to work with the Elders Council and has quickly put in place a project group with a wide range of expertise in working with people with dementia.
A survey will help to gather key information. People with dementia and people supporting someone with dementia can take part in the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/dementiafriendlycinema
