Join Expat Association, AAWE, for a program on Alzheimer’s, featuring a documentary, a panel discussion and a family support group
The Senior Committee of AAWE will host a public screening of “I Remember Better When I Paint” in the presence of the co-director and AAWE member Berna Huebner. On this occasion, they will announce the launch of an English-speaking support group under the auspices of France Alzheimer’s in Paris.
The documentary, “I Remember Better When I Paint”, narrated by Olivia de Havilland, is the first international documentary about the positive impact of art and other creative therapies on people with Alzheimer’s and how these approaches can change the way we look at memory impairment. Among those featured are noted doctors and Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer’s Disease International and daughter of Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer’s.
Family Support Group
Are you a caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s living in or near Paris? Do you need support from people who really understand because they’ve been there too? Do you need a place to exchange practical information, talk through challenges and strategies for coping in the French system? If you would like to meet other caregivers and participate in a group that will be moderated by a specialized English speaking psychologist trained by France Alzheimer, then please contact Wendy Stern, firstname.lastname@example.org or 06 15 25 18 13.
