Alzheimer's Disease: A Multi-Cultural Perspective

This documentary focuses on the actual experiences of four families as they care for an elder with Alzheimers Disease. Seen from the perspective of four ethnic minority groups Chinese, Japanese, Latino, and Vietnamese the video shows the obstacles they face, including:

  • Language barriers
  • Lack of support from the extended family
  • Inaccurate information about the disease and its etiology
  • Cultural norms that mitigate against long term placement.

Possible solutions to some of these problems are discussed by family members as well as professionals in the field of gerontology.
