Community Stories: Alice at the Store
Community Stories: Alice at the Store
10/16/201718:48

Every day, 92-year-old Alice Eng can be found at the pub across the street, the space where she and her husband used to own a store. Her family struggles with the realities of providing for her care as she ages and her dementia progresses, but Alice reminisces about her eventful life. Through everything, all she really wants is to be at home. Produced by Christopher Woon-Chen, Alice's great nephew.
