Carey Mulligan - Alzheimer's Society Ambassador - Grandmother's Dementia: VIDEO

A beautiful insight into the world of the grandmother of actress Carey Mulligan, who has dementia.


Says the YouTube description:

Carey Mulligan joined people with dementia and their carers at a dementia cafĂ© in Kentish Town, London. The Bafta-winning star has chosen to support Alzheimer's Society as her grandmother Margaret, known as Nans, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2004. In this film she discusses her relationship with Nans, and the effect dementia has had on her life. 

Speaking at the event, Alzheimer's Society Ambassador, Carey said:

'I am committed to helping the Alzheimer's Society in any way I can. My family and I rely on the help of organisations like Alzheimer's Society to help us understand the disease and guide us in the care of my grandmother. It's been a privilege to meet so many carers and people with dementia.'
