Wine, Women, and Dementia is Kitty's first feature film - to honor this journey with her mother, to spread awareness of the caregiver side of the equation in dementia, and to celebrate family caregivers - to let them know they are not alone and that they are worthy of being seen and respected alongside their dementia person on this difficult road to the end of life.
