About the Event
Sameer - Loves elders, cigars and cycling - oh, and trying to figure out how to eliminate loneliness...
Genre: Societal / Cultural
Film / Video: 1 hour 37 minutes
Anthony Hopkins just won an Oscar for his role in this moving film that depicts an aging man who must deal with his progressing memory loss. 50 million people live with dementia in the world today and that number is fast-growing with an aging population - many of us have or will be touched by dementia in some way so this is a highly relevant subject.
Intent of Session:
As part of a previous life adventure, I lived out of three nursing homes across North America for 12 months alongside many elders living with dementia. I remain highly engaged in the elders sector and found the film accurately and vividly portrayed the impact cognitive impairment has on people living with dementia, their families and caregivers. Would love the film to act as a springboard to discuss participants' personal experiences with dementia, an aging population, and maybe even (my favorite!) how to foster a multigenerational, more understanding world!
