Cherry Hill Public Library hosting events about Alzheimer’s Disease, memory loss awareness

When memory loss strikes an individual or family member, the fear of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease becomes an elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about. The Cherry Hill Public Library wants people to start the conversation by learning about memory loss this November.

The library will screen the film “Still Alice” on Monday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. The movie, also a novel by Lisa Genova, takes viewers through the heartbreaking journey of a young wife, mother and career woman suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each screening. No registration required.

The information session will also address the benefits of early detection and how Alzheimer’s affects the brain. The 90-minute session will have time for questions and answers.
