You're Looking at Me Like I Live Here and I Don't

In this film directed by Scott Kirschenbaum, a woman in the middle stages of Alzheimer’s disease seeks acceptance among fellow residents at the Traditions Alzheimer’s & Other Dementia Care Unit as she fights against the forces of a past she cannot remember, wandering day after day on a soul-searching odyssey through her Alzheimer’s care unit. Confined by the limits of her physical boundaries, she scavenges for reminders of her old identity in the outside world. The Center on Longevity sponsored a screening of this film followed by a panel discussion on February 16, 2012.
