Dementiaville (Episode 2) has won the General Education Broadcast Award at the Learning Screen Awards 2016! The episode that won was part of a three part series shown on Channel 4 last summer. This particular programme focused on the pioneering work of David Sheard, of Dementia Care Matters, who worked with three families to try and help them reconnect with their family member who had dementia. The judges praised the film for its sensitivity in tackling such a difficult subject. On accepting the award, Carol Komaromy praised the work of David Sheard and then paid tribute to the families who participated in making the film.
