Hope you’ll help us raise awareness of how the creative arts help improve quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s is the only disease in the top ten causes of death without a prevention, treatment or cure. What recourse then for those living with the disease? The documentary “I Remember Better When I Paint” shows how the creative arts can improve the quality of life for people living with Alzheimer’s.
The film documents people with memory impairment creating or experiencing visual and musical art; interviews with neurologists and other health care professionals; and visits to senior centers, nursing homes and museums in the U.S. and abroad — the film educates and provides hope to caregivers.
Even the smallest contribution of $1 will help
The Hilgos Foundation, co-producer of the documentary and a registered nonprofit, has started a campaign to broadcast the documentary to a wider audience on television. Even the smallest contribution of $1 will help towards the sponsorship of the broadcast. You can see the fundraising campaign at:
If you are a United States tax payer, your contribution will be tax-deductible, and a tax receipt will be sent.
