Preview – Granddad, Dementia & Me

Tom Sivyer and his grandson Dominic

After 79-year-old Tom Sivyer was diagnosed with vascular dementia, his grandson Dominic decided to document the change in his grandad over the course of two years.

In this moving documentary, Dominic captures Tom’s mental decline and reveals the impact this has had on his family from the diagnosis to the man Dominic hardly recognises as his grandad being sectioned into a psychiatric ward.
