Alzheimer's in the African-American community.

Alzheimers and African Americans

This 27-minute film looks at the high incidences of Alzheimer's in the African-American community as it documents the intimate, first-hand experiences of several families providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer's. The film intersperses information from health professionals throughout, making way for realistic discussion of the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's, genetic factors, financial concerns, and caregiver stress. Laced with candid, heart-felt emotion that other families will identify with, the film also shows how Alzheimer's can affect the interpersonal relationships between spouses and/or adult children who become caregivers. An excellent resource to inform and give hope to all caregivers as they adjust to the rewards and challenges of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's.
