Gina's Gems Film Series

Truly Madly Deeply

movie cover - Truly Madly Deeply
Gina is proud to present another brilliant yet overlooked film. Truly Madly Deeply - 1990


What happens when the love of your life comes back after dying.

"This is a beautiful little movie. Juliet Stevenson (as Nina) plays one of the most authentic female leads we've ever seen: She bawls full-out, complete with fluids; she's passive aggressive , irritable , loveable and likeable. Likewise, Alan Rickman's character, Jamie, is peevish, like all of us, self-centered, like all of us, but beautiful , unique and again, real." -IMDB

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior

Presented by the Alzheimer's Association
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost.

However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage.

Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer's disease.


Monday, May 14th
