Local CALA Members May Host Guests at Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me

glen campbell
Monday’s dementia intensive session begins with a showing of Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me, chronicling the famous singer’s farewell concert tour after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. It includes a poignant, up-close view of Mr. Campbell and his family as they navigate the day-to-day realities, joys, and difficulties of living with this disease.

CALA is pleased to offer local CALA-member communities up to 15 tickets for the showing of Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me at 10:15 on Monday, June 1. Members may want to host residents and families, prospective residents or families, associates or business partners at this moving documentary.

Perhaps you’d like to plan a luncheon or discussion group back at your community following the movie. It’s a great opportunity to share the gift of the Campbell family’s continued journey through Alzheimer’s disease. The movie will open doors for discussion and dispel stereotypes.

All attendees must have a ticket, available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are for the movie only, and do not include the intensive session or the CALA conference. Suggested donation is $10 per ticket.

This intensive is sold out for conference attendees

If you are securing tickets to the film for your community use, those tickets do not include attendance to the conference. Secure those tickets here.
