10 Glorious Seconds
10 glorious seconds is a short drama about Albert (played by Paul Collard, narrated by David Suchet). Living in a care home, he's in the late stages of Alzheimer's, and his use of language has been lost. His wife Josie (played by Gabrielle Hamilton) knows that time is running out for them and is desperate to connect again.
Albert doesn’t know her anymore, but he can still receive and return emotional signals. Although what Josie does and says seems not to have an obvious impact, her presence and support triggers vibrant connections in Albert's memory.
Watch Professor Graham Stokes explaining the importance of 'meaningful moments' in dementia care.
