On April 12th we had our first showing of the movie His Neighbor Phil at Bella Vista in New Haven. There were about 20 residents in attendance. After the movie we had some very meaningful discussions. One person related how she went through the same thing with her husband 10 years ago and some of the ordeals she had to go through. Another person was concerned that she was going for an assessment to determine a baseline on her mental status. Others were willing to share their thoughts that resurfaced from the past brought out by the movie.
On April 17th we showed His Neighbor Phil at The Gables in Guilford. There were about 40 residents that attended this showing. We had a good discussion period afterward in which mainly viewers had their questions answered by our panelists Maria Thomasetti from the Alzheimer's Association, and Susan Shultz from the Agency on Aging.
