SOUTHERN MAINE AGENCY ON AGING TO SCREEN DOCUMENTARY TOO SOON TO FORGET

Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) is proud to announce a special screening event of the documentary Too Soon to Forget: The Journey of Younger Onset Alzheimer's Disease.

Living with Alzheimer’s disease is a challenge, changing life for both the person with the disease and their family. But what if someone diagnosed with this disease was in their early 60s, 50s, or even as young as in their 30s? Younger onset Alzheimer’s disease affects people 65 years old or younger. Although there are many resources for those coping with Alzheimer’s, very little information is available specifically for those facing younger onset. This lack of information and support leaves many families feeling misunderstood and often disregarded. Too Soon to Forget (60 minutes) aims to change that.

No one should have to go through this experience alone. With the stories of these nine families, we trust this documentary will begin a national conversation that encourages awareness, understanding, and acceptance.
