Portrait of an Alzheimer’s Patientby Shaheen E Lakhan, MD, PhD, MEd, MS, FAAN | November 25, 2005
Living with Alzheimer’s disease is challenging for the patient and the entire family. AP Psychology student and elder brother Steven and Robert Griegoliet document the daily life of their grandfather James Conran suffering with Alzheimer’s. “During my grandfather’s last few days at home before his admission into an assisted living home geared towards Alzheimer’s patients, I made a short documentary,” says Robert, who serves as the director, editor, researcher, and cameraman of the project. “The video shows the dementia in a humorous, factual, and heart-touching way. Symptoms of dementia are listed throughout the video along with examples from my grandfather. It was my brother’s final project for psychology, hence his name in the credits, not mine.”
