It’s not a disgrace, it’s dementia (Cambodian)

Found this video in Cambodian that helps to raise awareness of dementia among the Cambodian community. The video is produced in Australia but it serves to address the issues that Cambodians with dementia and their caregivers face living in the community. It’s great to see the support provided for minority groups in Australia and the ability for the video to help provide awareness of dementia to the wider Cambodian audience in Asia.

It’s not a disgrace…it’s dementia, is a short film to raise awareness, reduce stigma and dispel myths about dementia within the Cambodian-speaking community. The film features carers of people living with dementia giving personal accounts, in their own language, of their experience, along with health professionals who talk about the condition and stress the importance of seeking help early. This film has been produced by Alzheimer’s Australia NSW, with thanks to the Department of Health and Ageing (DOHA) and Family and Community Services. It was produced in partnership with Why Documentaries and the Multicultural Communities Council of the Illawarra.
