    Recuerdos Perdidos/Lost Memories Telenovela Project

    The Recuerdos Perdidos/Lost Memories Telenovela Project uses a bilingual telenovela as an innovative educational tool for reaching and educating Southern California's diverse Latinx communities of caregivers about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and caregiving issues. The telenovela was created to help Alzheimer's Los Angeles reach large numbers of caregiving Latinx families and improve their understanding of dementia and its care. It has proven to be an effective outreach and education tool for Spanish-speaking caregiving families.

    ALZ Sucks®: Providing Support for LGBTQ+ People with Alzheimer’s Disease and their Families

    LGBTQ+ older adults who develop symptoms of Alzheimer’s are frequently mis-diagnosed due to prejudices and face unique barriers when accessing health and long-term care. In partnership with SAGE, Alzheimer’s Los Angeles (AlzLA) will produce five educational videos and a facilitator guide, profiling LGBTQ+ adults with dementia and their family caregivers. Using social media and face-to-face sessions, the videos will reach an under-served and stigmatized population with information to improve their access to quality dementia healthcare.
