I’m Still Here

Discussion to follow screening.

I’m Still Here is a 50-minute play that illuminates the realities of living with dementia.  A rich and powerful researched based play captures important aspects of, and deepens understanding about, the dementia journey from the perspective of persons living with dementia and their family partners in care.

This production was supported by the Collaborative Research Program: Rehabilitation and Long-term Care, Kenneth G. Murray and the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo: the Sunnybrook and Women’s Research Institute; and the Canadian Nurses Foundation.

Facilitator:  Susan Zorz, who is the Director of Resident Services at The Glebe Centre and is a Certified Recreation Therapist, has over 20 years’ experience working in Long Term Care, Acute Care, Mental Health and the Community.
