A preventative approach looks for ways to maintain and build social and community connections for older people. These cards, created by Iriss, are reminders to think about ways you can work with people you support to help them keep connected.
The honest heart
The Honest Heart stars the people we support from Turning Point Scotland's Viewpoint service. The documentary explores their determination to lead independent lives.
Turning Point Scotland's Viewpoint service in Ayr supports adults with learning disabilities to access their local community. Documentary film maker Ruth Carslaw worked with people who use the service to film each members as they filmed themselves capturing hand-held self-portraits, or point the lens outwards to the world before them.
Made whilst busy with their day to day lives, their films are full of candid glimpses: going to the gym, swimming, meeting friends and dancing.
