Arizona ALFA ANnual Spring Conference and Expo

Life in the Moment Presents: An Unforgettable Evening to Promote Alzheimer’s Caregivers @ Clowes Box Office
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In 2011, country legend Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Rather than hide his struggle, Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis—the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world.

The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour”, but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour-de-force, a journey that was chronicled in an award-winning documentary film that has been inspiring audiences across the country.

That film—GLEN CAMPBELL: I’LL BE ME— will be presented in Indianapolis during an extraordinary one-night-only event at Clowes Hall on Friday, April 24. This special benefit performance will help support Alzheimer’s caregiver organizations throughout central Indiana. And you’re invited.

GLEN CAMPBELL: I’LL BE ME features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney, Vince Gill, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Steve Martin, Taylor Swift and many others. Combining rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances, the film takes you behind-the-scenes as Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future.

The April 24 event includes the film presentation; a live audience conversation with Kim Campbell and director James Keach; plus a bonus live concert featuring Glen’s daughter and son, Ashley and Shannon and Campbell.

It promises to be an unforgettable evening that honors the dedication of Alzheimer’s caregivers and the courage of their loved ones. And the proceeds will help strengthen support for caregiver initiatives throughout the local community.

So save the date: Friday, April 24 at 7 pm.

Tickets available in person at the Clowes Box Office, online at or by phone at 1 (800) 982-2787

Thank you and hope to see you on April 24.

This Documentary “Alive Inside” Explores the Healing Power of Music

A joyous cinematic story of music’s ability to uncover the deepest parts of our humanity, “Alive Inside” is a stirring documentary that shows the sometimes-astonishing results of simple melody. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of nonprofit Music & Memory, as he fights against the healthcare system to prove that music can combat memory loss in our aging population. The miraculous results of sound are illuminated through interviews with family members, renowned neurologist/author Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin. The 2014 Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival, “Alive Inside” is an uplifting and emotional story of music and the mind.

National Conference on Dementia Care @ TBA
Jun 11 – Jun 12 all-day

In the coming years, the number of Canadians diagnosed with dementia is set to dramatically increase – placing an ever greater strain on services and quality of care. The Alzheimer’s Society of Canada estimates that the number of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a form of dementia, will increase from 747,000 in 2011, to 1.4 million by 2031. If action is not taken now, the Society estimates that this growth will result in health care costs of $293 billion a year by 2041. Numbers such as these underscore the fact that dementia has emerged as one of the most pressing issues facing governments, long-term care operators and health care professionals across the province and country. Insight Information’s National Conference on Dementia Care has been developed to be a flashpoint of innovation. The event brings together actors from both the public and private spheres to discuss and discover solutions to a growing demand for care. Featuring keynote speeches, panel discussions and case studies, theNational Conference on Dementia Care offers those invested in the area an opportunity to connect with some of the sector’s leading innovators and learn best practices from around the globe.
