Love Over Mind

 

Don't Leave Me Now

by Brian Daniels

Directed by Jeni Draper.

Dementia is not an illness confined to elderly people. It can develop in people in their 40s, 50s and 60s. The impact on and consequences for families is profound.

Don't Leave Me Now is inspired by two real life stories. The play explores with humour, insight and compassion the impact of early onset dementia on two very different families; highlighting the emotions, dilemmas and challenges.

It is endorsed by leading charities including Dementia UK, Dementia Pathfinders, Dementia Forward, SweetTree Home Care Services, Cruse and the National Council for Palliative Care and has been welcomed as a significant learning resource for carers, family, healthcare professionals and dementia practitioners.
