Hi Ulricke, in the mainly rural place I live in Canada there are many German speaking people who've settled here. The young woman in Berlin who is making the radio show, her great uncle lived in the facility I worked at. She sent him a copy of her demo show to see if it might work with people here. Often when people get dementia they revert to their original language. Because they knew I was interested in alternative approaches others were using, the demo came to me. And we started to correspond. She also told me about a friend of her's who was making dvds for people with dementia as well. I did try to contact her a year or so ago but didn't hear anything back although we had corresponded for awhile. I strongly believe my concept can be adapted to many countries using 'local photographers/videographers' shooting local places and musicians writing new music but adapted to local tastes. I also met a woman from Salzburg at a conference, Vera Brandt with whom I had some very interesting conversations and correspondence. So I have some insight into what's happening in your part of the world.
Hi Kate, I have created an You Tube channel as an alternative to tv. Connection through your device would certainly simplify my process. Please check out my Luminotions idea or go to https://www.facebook.com/luminotions/ Let me know what you think?
Ulricke, We might be on the same page. Please check out my Luminotions idea. Here is sample of a video I made for staff training to encourage and support empathy and compassion. https://youtu.be/MaQAsr_R3TM Maybe we can work together. I was connected to some young women in Berlin who were working on making radio and videos but not particularly in this area.
