Today is World Alzheimer’s Day. “My Name is Lisa” is a prize-winning short film about Alzheimer’s Disease, which causes gradual memory loss and is still without a cure. The filmmakers say 250,000 children, age 8-18 are caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. It’s very hard on kids, though my nieces and nephews will probably agree, at least part of the time, with what Anne M. Price’s daughter said: “Grandma is sometimes more fun now that she’s gone crazy.” Here is the film (6:25) by Ben and Josh Shelton (also available with German subtitles):
