The "Network Dementia in Public Life" in Rostock and the "ecolea | International School Rostock" invite you to the event "Dementia in the spotlight" on June 18.

Have you ever tried to look in a mirror and put marbles from a cup into a bowl with a spoon? Have you ever despaired of buttoning a shirt with gloves on?

The seventh-grade students at the "ecolea | Internationale Schule Rostock" have experienced the helplessness felt by people who can no longer do the things they are used to. As part of a class project in the "Performing Arts" course on the subject of dementia, they dealt intensively with the clinical picture. They learned how people with dementia perceive their surroundings, what difficulties they have to contend with in everyday life and what treatment options are available.

With the help of a dementia simulator, the students were able to experience what the symptoms of dementia feel like at 13 stations. At the station boxes, they were able to feel for themselves what it is like when everyday tasks become major challenges, when despair makes you angry, when you no longer feel confident and lose interest and desire.

The results of this discussion are self-developed stage scenes that the students will present on June 18 at the "Theater Compagnie de Comédie/BÜHNE 602". The performance will be framed by a varied program of the "Dementia in Public Life Network", which will provide information, encourage discussion and be fun.

In view of social structures and an increasingly older population, the prevalence of dementia is on the rise. It is an issue that affects more and more people indirectly or directly. The event organized by the "ecolea" and the "Network Dementia in Public Life Rostock" is intended to honor students' achievements on this topic and at the same time convey a positive message: We can only manage the extraordinary journey of dementia with respectful and empathetic interaction with one another - and this applies not only to the old, but also to the young!
