“The Forgotten Flame” is a short about the caregivers who work tirelessly for their loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease. Caregiver burnout is often as prevalent and debilitating as the disease itself, yet rarely given the same attention and focus on how to manage it. In researching, we found that caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that is only compounded with the helpless feeling of being trapped.
This film’s goal is to raise awareness and is dedicated to the caretakers of family members with dementia.
Directed by Derek Lamoureux (Canada)
