When Alzheimer's Strikes: A Way to Help

Wednesday, 27 May 2015
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Stories of how people with Alzheimer’s can regain capacities for exchange and communication through the impact of art and other creative therapies are the subject of an inspiring film and book by Berna Huebner, a longtime member of the WICE Board. Berna was spurred to carry out this project by her mother’s personal journey through this debilitating illness. She will share with us excerpts from her film, I Remember Better When I Paint, narrated by Olivia de Havilland, along with her own story of making it and showing it world-wide.

Instructor:  Berna Huebner is the founder of the Hilgos Foundation, which supports and encourages the ongoing process of artistic creation in people with dementia, including Alzheimer’s. She co-directed the film,  I Remember Better When I Paint, that shows how the creative arts can help Alzheimer’s patients re-engage in life.  Berna is now director of the Center for the Study of International Communications in Paris, and has served on the Boston University School of Medicine Alzheimer’s board,
