The Long Journey Home", is a play in two acts that depicts the true stories of caregivers in the Houston/  Galveston area who have taken care of parents, children, and spouses with dementia / Alzheimer's.  The play portrays the love, humor, and sadness that are part of the caregiver's journey.  It also enlightens the audience about the needs of the caregivers who do their best to take care of someone they love.
 
 The play was written by UTMB assistant professor, Oma Morey, PhD, and is based on interviews with 10 caregivers in the local area.  The play illustrates the challenges and struggles, as well as the love and intimacy several caregivers encounter as their loved ones progresses through the different stages of dementia/Alzheimer’s.
 
The play is directed by Galveston director Lisa Marie Daugherty and the characters are portrayed by local area actors.  The play will be followed by a short discussion with professionals who work with Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers and with and will people involved in the production.
