Join us for a discussion of the ways dementia and other cognitive challenges impact immigrant and refugee communities. This program will begin with a screening of Dementia, Dad and Me, a film about the dramatic change in the relationship between Hannah and her father, Rainer. The documentary follows the delicate transition from father-daughter to caregiver and cared-for. Rainer turns increasingly to memories from his archive of photographs and keepsakes, as well as the stories that have shaped his family’s life, many of which extend to his time before arriving in Canada. This documentary sheds light not only on the ways in which dementia impacts the relationship between child and parent, but also the way dementia impacts immigrants to Canada and their relationships with their adopted country.
