"I REMEMBER BETTER WHEN I PAINT"

Description of the Film from The Gerentologist

We thought you would like to see this very exciting, recent description of our film. It comes from The Gerontologist, a publication of the Gerontological Society of America-- and a leading source in that field. Here is what it says about the film:

"I Remember Better When I Paint" is perhaps the most important documentary to date dealing with our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

The film . . should be required viewing of every gerontology educator and practitioner, regardless of years in rank. Every student who is currently training in adult development, aging, gerontology, or geriatric medicine should see this video.

The film . . may be even be more critical viewing for long-time professionals who may continue to define those with AD and related dementias almost solely in terms of symptoms associated with physical and cognitive loss.

The film . . is a refreshing film of hope and possibilities. It shows the impact of nonpharmaceutical approaches in the creative arts on persons affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD), including those who have dementia, family members, care professionals, and community members.
