US television series announces special dementia episode

US television programme Emmerdale has announced a special episode to air this December.

It will give the viewers an understanding about how it feels to live with dementia.

Over recent months, the programme has shown a character named Ashley Thomas suffering from vascular dementia.

The special episode will show Ashley’s point of view as confused and how his health condition will affect his personal relationships.

The viewers will get to see a side of dementia that is rarely shown on television.

It will help people understand how dementia can affect a person’s ability to think, communicate, among others.
