Sound Doctor films provide information about a wide variety of issues, ranging from falls to loneliness, to nutrition to alcohol problems.

An extensive number of experts and older people were interviewed, to give you lots of practical advice and tips to help you live better at home, tackling:

  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Hydration
  • Nutrition
  • Oral hygiene
  • Alcohol
  • Having care at home
  • Falls
  • End of life discussions

The Sound Doctor mission is to improve the quality of life for people with long-term mental and physical health problems by educating them, their carers and their healthcare professionals about the most effective ways of managing their conditions.

Their vision is to bring practical, effective and credible information together in one place that will treat long term health as a complex and interconnected web of conditions and recognise that people with one condition may have other pressing needs.

You can find videos on a range of other long-term conditions on the services page.
