Finding Patience

Raising awareness of dementia in the African Caribbean Community to facilitate early diagnosis.


The number of people with dementia of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) origin is expected to rise significantly – a seven fold increase over 40 years compared to a two fold increase in the number of people with dementia across the whole UK population in the same period.

With input from professional across the healthcare sector we have developed a video that follows Patience and her family as they recognise and come to terms with her dementia and ultimately seek help. To view the video and read more about this initiative visit the national page.
