‘If you’ve got another disease, you know it, but with dementia, I don’t know it.’
Flourishing is the story of three families living in the UK, Sheffield, with young onset dementia. Filmed by award winning, Manchester based production company, Cosmic Joke, the film gives a rare insight into the lives of those living with young onset dementia, as well as the people around them. The families in this film had to face huge challenges to gain understanding and recognition from the healthcare system, the government, their workplaces and even from their own friends.
This is a story of courage and bravery and above all, love.
