Explaining dementia to children

The Alzheimer’s Society has just released ‘Memories with Grandma’, a short animated video which will help younger children, particularly between the ages of 7 and 11, to understand why their grandparents, or older aunts and uncles, forget who they sometimes are.

The video can also be used for schools and youth groups and there is an accompanying lesson plan to encourage the class to become a Dementia Friend. 

The video can be found here and is available in English, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic and with subtitles. The resources are on the Alzheimer’s Society website here.

The resources come along with an activity pack which enhances the messages which are important to children.
