Alive Inside a major hit

Careforce, Family 1st Medical, and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia would like to thank everyone who filled the Al Whittle Theatre to capacity for Alive Inside.

It was a true joy for us to present Alive Inside, and we would like to extend an extra-special thanks to our panelists Dr. Wenda MacDonald and Dr. Heather Price for sharing their thoughts and expertise with the sold-out audience!


Careforce, Family 1st Medical, and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia are proud to present the feature documentary Alive Inside AND a bonus discussion panel featuring Dr. Heather Price (Acadia University), Lara Robinson (iPod Pharmacy program) and Wenda MacDonald (Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia)

Alive Inside is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.

This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.

We would love to have you join us for this uplifting event. The film runs for 78 minutes. To learn more about Alive Inside, visit www.aliveinside.us
