We Are Family showcases the value of Dementia Care Matters’ ‘Feelings Matter Most’ philosophy for people living with dementia, which recognises that people living with a dementia are more feeling beings than thinking beings. Filmed at Landermeads Nursing Home, in Nottingham, UK, the film shows how the Butterfly Household Model of Care identifies that quality dementia care is all about the beauty of the moment and sharing and celebrating life. The film also explores how the model of care works from a training and financial viability perspective. It’s a powerful story about love, family and living in the moment.
