Topic: Film and Conversations with the Alzheimer's Association Featuring Short Film "Grandpa's Hands"

Presented by: Karla Fields, Alzheimer's Association

Join us for an hour-long Film and Conversations program featuring a screening of the short film "Grandpa's Hands" followed by discussion about the film and an informative presentation of Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia.


The film "Grandpa's Hands" shares the story of a family's visit to see their grandfather at a long term care facility and the events that transpire during that visit. Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia is an overview of Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia, learning to recognize symptoms, and treatments and resources provided by the Alzheimer's Association.


Our speaker Karla Fields will also reserve time at the end of the presentation for questions and answers.
