Sundown Stories is a series of short stories adapted for film for anyone who might enjoy a calming and relaxing story. The stories, written by and for persons living with dementia, are delivered in a calming environment, a gentle pace and soothing tone.

The aim is that these stories will be relaxing for those experiencing anxiety or distress that is associated with the phenomenon of Sundowning or anyone who enjoys at relaxing tale at bedtime.  

The project is delivered in collaboration with residents, carers and staff from Crossreach - The Elms Nursing Home, Sharing a Story CIC and Dunbar Dementia Carers Group. 

A new film is published on our Youtube account every Monday, and we will also be sending DVD to care homes, which will include both subtitled and BSL-interpreted versions. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

You can watch all Sundown Stories below!

Special thanks to filmmaker Oliver Benton, storyteller Adam Robertson, BSL performance interpreter Amy Dawson and everyone who shared their creativity and 'snippets of their life stories' with us. This project has been funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
