The Alzheimer/Dementia Support Center of Modesto will be presenting an evening at the State Theatre to discuss Alzheimer’s Disease and the other dementing diseases. We will have a panel of experts to discuss the diseases and how music affects the patients. The movie ALIVE INSIDE will be shown, demonstrating the beneficial effects of music. We will have a prize drawing of various gift baskets so remember to bring cash with you for the prize tickets.
Five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia—many of them alone in nursing homes. A man with a simple idea discovers that songs embedded deep in memory can ease pain and awaken these fading minds. Joy and life are resuscitated, and our cultural fears over aging are confronted.
Doors at 5:30; panel discussion at 6; film at 7 p.m.
