“His Neighbor Phil” A Story of Love, Devotion and Alzheimer’s Disease

Phil

Love outlasts even the worst of our realities.  Love never ends.

SYNERGY Home Care presents “His Neighbor Phil” is the story of Harvey, a man whose wife (Mary) has early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The film shows the effects of the disease not only on Mary but also the entire family and their  community. While the film deals honestly with the realities of the disease, it focuses most of its attention on the tireless work of the caregivers.

The film stars nationally-known actors Stephanie Zimbalist (Remington Steele), Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, Lost, Glee), Ellen Dolan (As the World Turns), Oscar nominee Sally Kellerman

(M*A*S*H) and Nashville recording artist Ashlee Hewitt (Elle: A Modern Cinderella Story)

“We wanted the film to be a true telling of what families go through when Alzheimer’s or other dementia symptoms become a part of their life,” writer/director Scott Thompson said. “But even more

than that, we wanted to show the truth that love outlasts even the worst realities of life, including Alzheimer’s disease and that it is love which sustains them when everything else seems to be gone.”

This film is free and will be shown at the Carlisle Theatre on Wednesday, September 14 at 7:00 PM.
