My story is a series of documentaries made with people attending Meadowpark Day Centre in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. Filmed in the autumn of 2013, each of the five films provides a platform for one of the participants to talk about their life and what has been important to them.
Whilst each film is personal and unique, they also share themes of love and loss, how the war shaped their early lives, the importance of family in a rapidly changing world and the value of health and social care services as they move into their ninth and tenth decades.
Meadowpark Day Centre provides care during the day for people who are housebound or living alone, helping them to maintain independence as well as providing an opportunity for support and companionship. The centre offers opportunities to learn new skills and hobbies or relearn old ones, meet new friends and different people, join in with organised activities and events, and enjoy trips out and visits to places of interest.
