Alzheimer’s Talks: Perspectives & Personal Stories from Noteworthy Sources


7:30 pm May 23, 2017
Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall
200 University St, Seattle

Michael Reagan, eldest son of Ronald Reagan and Chairman of the John Douglas French Alzheimer’s Foundation, will discuss his work to expand understanding about Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias and share his experiences and perspective on the subject of Alzheimer’s and the positive power of creative expression.

Still Here—A Narrative of Hope, a year-long program of events, exhibitions, community discussions and outreach creative arts workshops, including a series of high-profile conversations—on-stage interviews with well-respected public figures in the fight for greater understanding about Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Our purpose: to overcome fear and stigma with a public narrative of hope—bringing people with dementia out of the shadows, exploring the challenges and joys of caregiving, creating more opportunities for low-income residents living with memory loss to participate in life affirming creative arts programs, and providing the experiences all of us need to build a dementia friendly community.
