< Back to the Generic Service Intervention: Dementia Competency Framework

A short film about the Mental Capacity Act, family life, dementia and decisions. Part of the Mental Capacity Act Project funded by:

  • Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Birmingham Cross City Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Birmingham South Central Clinical Commissioning Group

Don’t Leave Me Now is a play by Brian Daniels. The play has been well received by members of the public, by dementia charities and the National Council for Palliative Care.

This edited production includes short messages about some of the principles of the Mental Capacity Act.

The play explores the impact of early onset dementia and family life, and is inspired by the true accounts of two couples.

It is aimed at those who may not be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and can be used as a training aid for professionals to understand the human aspect of best interest decision making.
