"I Remember Better When I Paint"

This event on May 29 (3:30-5:30) at the Metropolitan Museum in NY is worthwhile for any health care provider who encounters people with dementia and for family members of persons with any form of dementia.


Please join us for a screening of I Remember Better When I Paint, a film by Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner.  I Remember Better When I Paint 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 the disease. Among those who are featured are noted doctors and Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer’s Disease International and daughter of Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer’s.

Following the screening, filmmaker Berna Huebner will be joined by Dr. Sam Gandy, Chair of the Mount Sinai Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, and Gail Sheehy, bestselling author of Passages in Caregiving: Turning Chaos into Confidence, for a lively discussion moderated by Carolyn Halpin-Healy, Founder and Executive Director of Arts & Minds.

Painting is not just creativity, but a perfect way to express your ideas and explore the real talent hidden deep inside you. It’s a wonderful way of coping with your stress and making you comfortable with your day to day pursuits.
