‘Love Lives Here’ is my latest documentary looking at how US-based memory care provider Silverado gives life to residents by embracing a core operating philosophy of love and recognizing the value of the human spirit.
The 25 minute film was released on March 14, 2016. It’s the third installment in the documentary series ‘Side by Side: Love and Joy in Dementia Care,’ produced and directed by Maunder and executive produced by American sociologist and photographer Dr Cathy Greenblat.
“Silverado has a unique approach that sees them getting people to do things that the top neurologists in the world said was impossible, which presented an ideal opportunity to create a thought provoking piece about dementia care,” says Greenblat.
The film was shot at four different Silverado communities in California.
“All of us at Silverado are committed to changing the way the world cares for and perceives people with cognitive decline – a vision we established at our founding 20 years ago,” said Loren Shook, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder, Silverado. “It was a tremendous honor for us to participate in a project led by such a talented team of filmmakers. If there’s one message I’d like families to take away, it’s that a dementia diagnosis does not mean the end of a meaningful and purposeful life.”
