Event description
I thought dementia has no cure...well, there IS a way to improve our memory! You will learn how from " Do You Know What My Name Is?"

About this Event

About the Event:

Each year, 20, 000 new patients are diagnosed with dementia in Canada. Are you worried about getting dementia? You should be! This is a joint event by Tonari Gumi (Japanese Community Volunteers Association) and West Coast Healthy Memory Society (WCHMS). We would like to invite you to this heartwarming documentary movie about those affected by dementia. We will learn to have HOPE from this movie. After screening the movie, WCHMS will hold a 30-minute trial session of its Smile Brain Program, which helps to improve your memory. Come feel what it’s like to get your brain activated!

About the Movie:

What if simple reading, writing and calculating could counteract some of the effects of Alzheimer's disease? This documentary follows a research study of a treatment in Ohio. It pursues the answers to what it means to live a happy life, and what may be considered a truly happy conclusion to that life. What would it be like to have a happy ending for those who suffer from dementia?
