Film Screening & Talk Back of "A Timeless Love"

A Subtle & Powerful Tool To Create Conversations

Raising Awareness & Reducing Stigmas

Our Founder, Lori La Bey is asked to review films on dementia all the time. From the moment she saw "A Timeless Love" she knew is was an exceptional film. It exposes everyday life with dementia and how it impacts relationships; not only family and friends, but work environments, neighbors, and communities at large. This film validates the lived experience, highlights stigmas and struggles, while giving hope to those diagnosed and those who care.

Alzheimer's Speaks has had the privilege of being a platinum sponsor of "A Timeless Love" which allows us to do unlimited events bringing families and professionals together to learn and support one another in a fun and safe fashion. Below you will see quotes about the film as well as a couple of trailers and photos from our Red Carpet event.

“The film pointed out to me that nobody
outside of the Alzheimer’s community understands.”

Ed Luby, Cared For His Wife With dementia

"A Timeless Love" was originally launched under the name "His Neighbor Phil" and since has been changed to "A Timeless Love." So you may hear reference to both names.

Movie Goers Commonly Say
"They Finally Don't Feel Alone Anymore."

A Timeless Love, is a beautiful film which can be leveraged to bring people together in a safe setting to experience life with dementia. Lori La Bey wrote the talkback points for the film and has facilitated many talkbacks where both family and professionals have shared their personal stories and feelings. She has witnessed incredible conversations where audience members have shared their dementia experiences that they have never told another family member or even a friend. All while getting the support they deserve and feeling connected to their community and resources.

Quotes On The Film

"I LOVED this film...there were so many relatable, funny, poignant, humorous, heartbreaking and hopeful moments all captured within the fabric of a single family trying to stay connected to each other and their community through the power of music and love. You will recognize your loved one, your family, your friends and yourself somewhere in this film. I laughed, cried, cringed and cheered. It's a must-see!"

Mara Botonis, the recipient of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award and Author of When Caring Takes Courage 

“His Neighbor Phil, is indeed a great film and right on the money for accuracy in typical ‘key players’ and behaviors, reactions, approaches, beliefs, and common concerns regarding dementia. I am sure ‘first timers’ as well as those who have made their journey will resonate with the film allowing new conversations to happen, awareness to grow, and belief that we can CHOOSE to make a positive difference in how people living with dementia are able to live their lives.” Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA Dementia Care & Training Specialist

Quotes On The Film

"I enjoyed the film very much. It definitely heightens awareness by showing some dementia symptoms and the reactions of others to those symptoms. It also highlighted the importance of being direct, honest and to have continued social interaction when dealing with a person with dementia. The film also raises the issue of the stigma of dementia and how people should respond to this in a more positive manner." Paulan Gordon, Diagnosed with Dementia

“In the twenty years that I have worked with people with dementia and Alzheimer’s, I have seen firsthand how people with these diseases can still have satisfying and fulfilling lives, as long as people around them, families and caregivers understand how to work with their abilities. Movie and television portrayals rarely help us see this. Most focus on the worst aspects of this dreaded disease. His Neighbor Phil is the best attempt so far. This gem of a movie paints a complex picture of a loving family as they come to grips with their mother’s decline in her cognition. The story is rich and the characters multi-dimensional, including the mother who retains her energy and sense of humor even as her memory and abilities are fading.” Dr. Jytte Fogh Lokvig, PhD, Alzheimer's and Dementia expert, Lecturer, and Author

Quotes On The Film

"Mary stole my heart. I was extremely impressed with the way this movie accurately portrayed what happens, when Alzheimer's enters a family's life, and the denial that automatically seems to come along with it. Also, the relationship that music can have with a person living with a dementia-related disease is a lesson we all need to take to heart. Bravo, very well done." Gary Joseph LeBlanc, Author of The Aftereffects of Caregiving

"This film was not only easy and interesting to watch, we found it to be extremely accurate, down to earth and it portrays family life/living with Alzheimer’s in a very realistic manner. While meaning no disrespect to another fine movie Still Alice, this is the film that should be in theaters and on TV for the general public to see."
