The story of Brecon Dementia Friendly Community is being promoted in film by Phil Stasiw, Powys County Council's Communications Officer. Phil spent a few days in the summer with Rhiannon Davies (Joint-Chair of Brecon DFC) and volunteers to find out more about this growing social movement. Phil shares his thoughts below.
"My job in promoting the work through medium of film is an easy one, however the work and commitment you have as a group to support those living with dementia is inspiring, it truly is. Just following Rhiannon and the volunteers around for a few days was exhausting. The passion, drive and commitment everyone showed during the week and days getting to know one another was an honour to be a part of.
I hope the story goes out far and wide, and other communities in Powys and Wales will follow your example, you have set the bar high, and I’m sure others will want to follow."
