Walk Kick Off and Film Screening
Midcoast Walk to End Alzheimer's

Join us for a screening of Academy Award Nominated 44-minute documentary Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter followed by a facilitated discussion.



With profound insight and a healthy dose of levity, COMPLAINTS OF A DUTIFUL DAUGHTER chronicles the various stages of a mother's Alzheimer's Disease and the evolution of a daughter's response to the illness. The desire to cure the incurable - to set right her mother's confusion and forgetfulness, to temper her mother's obsessiveness - gives way to an acceptance which is finally liberating for both daughter and mother.


Light refreshments, prizes, and a raffle for a handmade quilt.
