My Thoughts On Dementia
by Harry Urban
May 19, 2015

Short but poignant blog written by someone who is battling another brain disorder, dementia (the May 19, 2015 entry).
When he [Glen] is playing before a audience, it is hard to think of him having Alzheimer's.
The same with me when I get on a roll speaking about dementia. It is during the downtime that you realize we are losing the battle and parts of our passion.

Art therapy is the catalyst to provide the voice and the memories of those who have lost their ability to articulate their life stories, their emotions and thought processes. At a recent screening of Glen Campbell’s documentary, I’ll Be Me, a panel of professionals led by Angel Duncan MA-MFT, ATR, answered questions about Alzheimer’s disease and the benefits of expressive art therapies. Angel Duncan was able to meet with the Campbell family who shared how Glen has been able to benefit from engaging in art therapy.

Documentary explores how couples deal with Alzheimer’s
By Fredrick Kunkle
Washington Post
April 16, 2015

Barbara Klutinis, filmmaker, produces her first full-length documentary, “The Sum Total of Our Memory: Facing Alzheimer’s Together”.
Klutinis’s movie comes as Alzheimer’s becomes more prevalent in an aging society and depictions of its impact are appearing more frequently in popular culture.

"Pop culture" includes:

"I'll Be Me", Glen's documentary film
"Still Alice", fictionalized film based on a true story
An episode of “House of Cards”
Episodes of “Mad Men,” “The Sopranos,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and other television shows
“Slow Dancing With a Stranger”, a non-fiction book by Meryl Comer

It (Alzheimer's disease) is definitely bleeding much more significantly into the media,” said George Vradenburg, a founder of the D.C.-based nonprofit US Against Alzheimer’s. “It used to be the case that you hid out, you wanted to sort of stay private, you didn’t want to talk about your disease. But now more and more people are willing to talk about their disease. And more and more people are telling stories of others, fictional and real, of people experiencing this disease. So we’re beginning to see a crack in the stigma as people begin to talk about this disease.”
