Based on the book What’s Happening to Grandpa? by Maria Shriver, this program tells the stories of five children, ages 6 through 15, who are confronted by the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on their grandparents.
Commentary by Shriver, whose father has Alzheimer’s, offers grandchildren of patients compassionate advice on how to cope with a beloved family member’s gradual decline into dementia through these five case study “lessons.” Grandpa, Do You Know Who I Am? is a valuable resource both for young people and for counselors and healthcare professionals who provide guidance to children and their families.
