Barbaras story still

Dementia training film Barbara, the whole story has been watched 5,000 times on YouTube in just two months by people across the world as far afield as Chile, New Zealand and Singapore. 

The film was originally created to raise awareness of dementia among all 13,200 staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’.  

It was the brainchild of Chief Nurse Eileen Sills and her nursing colleagues. They wanted the film to be made publicly available so that everyone could benefit from its messages. 

Eileen says: “It’s absolutely fantastic that the film has been so successful. For so many people to watch the film in just two months shows that dementia is an issue that everyone is concerned about. We all know that dementia affects memory, but this film shows that there are many other subtle signs to look out for.

“We’re pleased to be making a small contribution to raising awareness of this terrible disease and how we can all care for the people affected by it.”

The film was launched on YouTube on 31 March and reached the milestone of 5,000 views on Saturday 31 May.
