About

There are so many stories to tell... legacies to honor... journeys that we can learn from. 

As a Director of Marketing for one of the largest Senior Living Companies in the US, I soon realized that by being the first point of contact with families I often heard their untold stories, struggles and emotional journeys. I heard the legacies of who their loved ones once were before they were brutally robbed by Alzheimer’s Disease. They were the last Buffalo Soldiers, first car dealership owner, newspaper editor, school teachers, nurses, veterans. They were important members of society. They are mothers, fathers, friends, siblings, aunts, uncles, wives, husbands, 

Once they became residents of Senior Living their stories of who they were became important stories to know. Enough has been ripped away from them so preserving their integrity and dignity became my top priority. Their caregivers needed to know just how important each individual is. Why it was important to comb their beautiful silver waves of hair, keep their clothes tidy, put on their jewelry they treasured. Why the Buffalo Soldier needed to put on his uniform once in a while and wear it to dinner. 

In 2017, I continued my education and became a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Trainer. I plan to use this documentary toneducate and remind caregivers of the priveledge of caring for those with Alzheimer’s Disease or any form of Dementia. 

It will be a very raw documentary. Very little editing. You will hear real stories of the legacies and the long journeys. 

Risks and challenges

Our pros definitely outweigh the cons. We will be further educating on this awful disease.
