The film has resounded with people around the world. Viewers have said:
“A wonderful and provocative film. As a guy who watched my mum slowly sink into total dementia, I can only ‘If only’—I wish I had Memory Bridge’s principles then! But ‘Love Is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness’ made so much sense, and is so well presented. Thank you.” – Steve
“Wow! Enlightening! Really enjoyed ‘Love Is Listening.’ I learned that giving time is the key.” – Caroline
“Thank you, Michael Verde, for this film. I believe everyone needs to see this documentary. It is not only about people with dementia. It is about everyone who is isolated because of disabilities or mental health issues. EVERYONE knows someone who is disconnected, and unless we learn to love and connect we will all grow lonely.” – Sarah
