GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD)- The disease Lewy Body Dementia became known to many after the death of Robin Williams nearly a decade ago. This form of dementia affects roughly 1 million people in the United States each year and impacts them both mentally and physically, in addition to physical control and motor skills typically in people over the age of 50. Clark has spent months with one of their residents, Betty Smith, and her family to create a 30-minute documentary film about her experience with Lewy Body Dementia.
Today we have Renee Parham from Clark to tell us more about this project.
