Forget Me Not - The Alzheimer's Whodunnit

Jim’s wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He’s determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has dementia. It’s a case worthy of the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do.

At the heart of Forget Me Not is a detective whose tool of the trade - his mind - is failing him, making the most important case of his life something of a challenge to solve. By turns hilarious and thought-provoking, this is a one-man comedy poetry theatre show that has a lot to say about how we treat and perceive people with dementia. So much so that, since seeing the show, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust have recruited Rob to work with healthcare staff, using Forget Me Not as a training aid in the areas of compassion and whistleblowing.

As a student nurse, Rob spent three months on a Challenging Behaviour ward for people with late stage Alzheimer’s. Largely based on Rob’s experiences, many of the stories depicted in the show are true. Except the murders, obviously.

Rob worked for twelve years as a registered nurse in acute psychiatric units around England, Scotland and Australia. He also worked in child and adolescent units, drug and alcohol services, eating disorders, early psychosis intervention and psychiatric intensive care.
