Understanding the emotional experience of Alzheimer’s disease helps each of us to be more empathetic and supportive. The documentary Too Soon to Forget: The Journey of Younger Onset Alzheimer’ Disease shows the experience of nine families living with Alzheimer’s disease in mid-life: the isolation, the adjustments, and the healing power of community. Their stories show that all of us have a role in supporting those living with Alzheimer’s disease. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with guests speakers Dr. Neelum Aggarwal and Susan Frisk, LSW,MSW, from the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center (their support group, Without Warning, developed the film).
