Books, Movies & More

Our Dementia community is enhanced through the efforts of both independent writers and researchers. 

 

In addition, people seek creative outlets to express feelings about their experiences through music, art, poetry, documentaries and even mainstream movies and media.

We do not endorse the works of others. All opinions and presentations expressed are those of independent creative efforts, and not necessarily the position shared by the Dementia Society of America in whole, or in part.

 

Please find a growing number of resources, references, and creative expressions that have come to our attention. If you would like your efforts to be listed here, please contact us. The "Learn more" links below will open non-Dementia Society websites in a separate web browser page, so you can keep your place here.
