Every day, children of all ages are forced to confront the reality that a family member has Alzheimer's Disease. With so many "adult" discussions going on, a child sometimes feels left out and confused. What's Wrong with Grandma? speaks to the children trying to cope with an elder who's acting very strange.

Young Ellen expresses, as only a child can, the frustration, sadness, and even anger felt toward Grandma's peculiar behavior, her lapses of memory, and her unexplained fears. But she also captures the warmth and humor of special moments the family shares with Grandma.
