I met Alzheimer’s disease several years ago and it changed my life forever. It is changing all of our lives now.
I was an intern at an assisted living community. I started off saddened, frankly frightened at times, and knew that I had a lot to learn. I was thankfully trained extensively on how to treat those struggling and happened to find a passion in their personalities. A very good friend of mine recommended that I read the bestselling book and now major motion picture, Still Alice by Lisa Genova. What a fantastic read that not only opened my eyes but my mind and heart to all those people struggling with this disease; both directly and indirectly.
I absolutely recommend you read this book and see the Oscar-winning film out in theaters NOW. Please contact me today to take you to see the film, the library or bookstore, or show you how to order the book online!
“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.”
Please take a look at the official trailer and websitsite below! The movie features Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, and Kate Bosworth among others.
