The Pahrump Community Dementia Film Series

Dementia Friendly Pahrump has one mission for 2020: increase dementia awareness. Toward that end, we are hosting a series of four films on the topic of dementia.

These FREE community screenings will take place once each quarter throughout the year. Each film will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with someone involved in the making of the film, or with an expert on the film’s subject.

Still Alice

Our showing of Still Alice was a great success! It was amazing to see so many community members come to learn more about dementia. 

Thank you to Dr. Peter Reed, of the Sanford Center of Aging, for facilitating such an engaging discussion following the film.
