Film 1-Families face many challenges when someone they love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It affects everyone in the family, in one way or another. This gives voice to children and young teens who experience the disease through a grandparent. We are able to see their confusion, sadness, and fear, but we also see their creativity, wisdom, and courage. They show us many ways to cope.
Film 2-This powerful 2012 film sheds light on the impact of financial abuse of the elderly, and gives valuable information to help families and professionals protect vulnerable older adults. Long before diagnosis, persons with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia often exhibit loss of judgment regarding finances. The film documents the story of Hollywood icon, Mickey Rooney, who lost millions of dollars to a close relative.
