Editorial Reviews

"I Remember Better When I Paint", narrated by Olivia de Havilland, is a 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 renowned neurologists who explain how creative activities engage areas of the brain that are not damaged or less damaged by the disease and thus help reawaken a sense of personality, identity and dignity. The personal stories which are related include that of Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer's Disease International, who discusses the experiences of her mother, Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer's and also painted. The DVD also includes seven bonus films: "Organizing an Outing", "Organizing a Creative Workshop", "The Importance of Physical Exercise", "Recreating Social Bonds", "The Hearthstone Method", "The Memory Gardens" and "Art and Care Until the Last Stages". This DVD gives new hope to families, caregivers and people in general as they contemplate ways in which their communities can help cope with Alzheimer's. As author and journalist Gail Sheehy has said: "It shows an entirely new pathway for engaging with a loved one you thought was lost. Price quoted is for individual/private use only. If you are a college, university or library looking to license this film and/or include in your catalog, please contact Films Media Group to purchase the DVD.

This is one of the most compelling stories about connecting persons with dementia to life again. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a friend or family member with any form of dementia. It will inspire you to see the light in a perceived dark world and it will spark ideas on connecting persons with dementia to ways that open their minds and their lives again. It is a fabulous story that begins with a caregiver's observation and progresses to the caregiver and daughter connecting the dots that ultimately opens her mother's mind to living again. It is also the story of a deep commitment to enhancing a person's life with dementia.

I selfishly don't want to review this product, since I never want there to be a shortage! These we're recommended by a respected nutritionist and they are amazing. It's like eating a mounds bar but filling and with unbelievably low sugar content. How these things taste like they do without sugar and with low calories is beyond me. Expensive but totally worth it.
