If you or someone you care about is affected by dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, you’re not alone. Many families in our area are touched by this disease. Find support and information from community resources at our next movie night featuring, “Still Alice”. After the movie, a brief, educational discussion will be offered to help gain an understanding of these illnesses. Refreshments will be available for sale at the movie, but this event is free to attend.

About the Movie
Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty years old, she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her life—and her relationship with her family and the world—forever.
Losing her yesterdays, her short-term memory hanging on by a couple of frayed threads, she is living in the moment, living for each day. But she is still Alice.
(This movie is rated PG-13 for language and mature themes, and may not be appropriate viewing for children.)
