Seeking healing and comfort in community, a dementia family caregiver roadtrips the U.S. to swap caregiver stories of love, humor, devotion, and death with other dementia caregivers – often over glasses of wine – who share this hilariously heartbreaking end-of-life journey.
Wine, Women, and Dementia tells the tale of dementia life through the lens of the family caregivers who strive to accept the beauty and the brutality, the hilarious and the horrific – for themselves and their dementia person.
It celebrates family caregivers while exploring themes of familial duty, perseverance, the power of surrender, the aftermath of healing, and most importantly, how to honor LIFE on the long road to death.
Sponsored by Alzheimer Calgary and THIRD ACTion Film Festival with support from Caregivers Alberta and Dementia Network.
Our mission at Alzheimer Calgary is to lead with our influence and expertise to help people impacted by dementia to live well, and we build community capacity to support them.
Our mission at THIRD ACTion Film Festival is to change the dialogue on aging.
