Senior Committee: Aging + Loss, Movie of the Month

Each month our senior committee provides relevant resources for our senior community, as well as a movie of the month recommendation. This month’s movie is Away from Her.

Long married, Fiona (Julie Christie) and Grant (Gordon Pinsent) find their mutual devotion tested by her struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. When it becomes apparent that the condition is worsening, she checks into a rest home. Grant visits her a month later and finds that his wife has grown close to Aubrey (Michael Murphy), a fellow resident. Jealous and hurt, Grant finally seeks help from Aubrey’s wife (Olympia Dukakis) when Fiona suffers a crisis.

Here are some resources that may help you, or someone you know, centered around aging and lostt. If you are interested in finding out more about the senior committee, please contact us!
