Support for the elderly at Christmas
Coping at Christmas
Abbeyfield’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for older people and make their lives easier and more fulfilling.
The Wisdom Project
Ridley Scott Associates are making a documentary film project celebrating the rich and varied lives of ordinary members of the Great British public aged over sixty-five.
Britain’s population is aging and yet the elder members of our communities are often the least represented in the media. This project would like to help to redress that balance by putting the wit, wisdom and wiles of those aged over sixty-five centre-stage in this exciting film. We are looking to find a range of elderly citizens, from every conceivable walk of life, to take part in the filming of the first stage of this project, commencing this Christmas 2013.
If you are aged over sixty-five and are interested in the opportunity to share a snapshot of your Christmas on camera, or have a friend or family member who is, we’d love to hear from you.
Contributions may be self-filmed, in the form of home movies, or filmed by our team. If this sounds of interest please contact me at the below address and I can tell you more details about this inspiring project and if you know anyone else who might like to join us, please forward this message on.
