Merging both films of dementia (Bangla and English)

  • Put voice over in English in the film so that it could be understood globally.
  • Include profile of the persons speaking in the film.
  • Permission from the family (acknowledgement for the film)
  • Logo with the name should come in the film.
  • Before observe “World Alzheimer’s Day” inform Frank about the coordination. He will provide necessary contacts about the programme.
  • Identify the friends of Dementia Bangladesh.
  • Proceedings of the conference should be published immediately after the conference.
  • Add a page of current research of Dementia in the website.
  • Use plenty of pictures and few of words in the website.
  • Linking Dementia with other diseases like Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Paralysis etc.
  • We should think about economic analysis of the impact of Dementia in Bangladesh later on.
