On 5 June 2017 The Guardian reported:
My Life Films combines music, photos, clips, and interviews to celebrate the lives of those with dementia -- and help carers build better patient relationships. Jorg Roth...set up the charity with his wife Carolin. The Roths, both formerly film-makers, gradually worked out the idea of the films with the help of freelance editor Tim Greifenberg and dementia specialists. As the charity's work gets known more widely, there is also evidence from families, care homes, and emerging from more formal studies, that the films help in more practical ways too, from helping to calm agitation without drugs to rallying support from family and friends.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of health, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
There is anecdotal evidence not just of how much patients enjoy their films, but of the unexpected effects they have had.
An NHS mental health trust is conducting a more formal assessment of the films, the charity has won two awards -- including Outstanding Dementia Care Product in the National Dementia Care Awards -- and talk of its work is starting to spread among professionals.
