Lean on Me - Music Video

The BIG Generation’s original music video of this great old standard tells the story of a couple who were ‘caregivers’ for one another from their twenties all the way through the old age they shared. The Big Generation’s Lean On Me is dedicated to its three leads, Robert Foster, Elaine Teitlebaum and Skip Mitchell, all of whom have passed away since this movie was made three years ago.

The Duppy

All of us who are over 50 love our nostalgic memories of childhood. The Duppy is a beautiful memory of a home health aide’s childhood growing up in Jamaice. A “duppy” is a ghost. For Donna, her duppy is a ghost who haunted the her life with recurring memories of her best friend, some of them lyrical and loving—others terrifying. Take Donna up on her invitation to visit the most private moments of her childhood—and revisit some of your own memories while you’re there.

The Follower

‘The Follower’ is a bittersweet short movie about a couple living with Alzheimer’s disease. She’s becoming more confused. He’s fighting for her, and against his own sadness. But they’re both full of love for each other—every single day.

Meet Patti & Jerry

Patti and Jerry are the real-life stars of ‘The Follower.’ These two incredible actors are actually fighting against dementia themselves. If you’re worried they’ll make you sad, think again. What Patti and Jerry will do is help you re-discover your own joy, love and courage.

For Those Among Us

Even if you haven’t seen the spoken word version of For Those Among Us, without words, the bonds of love and devotion between caregivers and patients speak for themselves. What may be most touching, is that those beautiful bonds are equally loving in both directions.

For Those Among Us - Music Video

Here are some quotes from ‘For Those Among Us. Some are of caregivers, others are the words of patients:
“When my mother died, Brian was there for me.”
“My mom can’t talk to me now, and I can’t talk to her (because she doesn’t understand anymore). So we just spend time together.”
“I don’t know what I would have done without my sister.”
….“Brian is my best friend.”
