Dementia and the Welsh language

Portraying and understanding the linguistic problems when living with dementia – that is the aim of this unique session organised by the Welsh Language Commissioner, Alzhimer’s Society Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.
Dyfan Roberts and Mirain Fflur will perform an extract from ‘Y Tad’ – the powerful drama portraying the life of a gentleman living with dementia. Following the performance, a panel of experts will discuss the performance and finding from a new report to be publish by the Welsh Language Commissioner and the Alzhimer’s Society Cymru in the autumn.
