Keys, Names, Bags, Words Documentary Film Screening - World Alzheimer’s Day
Dementia is one of the greatest fears of people today. This documentary, produced in partnership with the Global Brain Health Institute, aims to shift that narrative of fear and hopelessness to one of hope and action. There are things we can do as individuals to reduce our risk of developing dementia. There are ways to connect meaningfully with our loved ones, even if they no longer recognize us. We can live a high quality of life after diagnosis. Keys Bags Names Words shows intimate profiles of people living with dementia and their care partners. You’ll meet doctors discussing what you can do in your life to support brain health and prevent cognitive decline. And you’ll also meet musicians and artists, scientists, and policy experts from around the world engaged in a bold approach to tackle what has become the greatest global challenge for health and social care in the 21st century, dementia and brain health. This film is not a lament to loss, but a quirky and inspiring lens on the human spirit.
World Alzheimer’s Day is September 21 and a perfect time to raise awareness, and change perceptions around this often misunderstood disease.
