What a wonderful resource of information from the medical teams, the encouragement for family members in fear that this is our future, and the recognition of how important a support system such as this is needed for the entire family.
Our souls hurt when my sister and I finally came to the crossroads of "When is enough, enough?" Each family has to define this point. Ours came when mom's once strong body started declining equally with her mind. We were emotionally and mentally sinking until our local Alzheimer's Association held their wonderful series on all aspects of this insidious disease.
Educate yourselves with all the information possible so you can make the wisest choice for you and Your Loved One.
In my opinion, we who are living with this daily, should educate, share and encourage others around us who would find this informative.
"The Forgetting: A portrait of Alzheimer's", is one such tool.

Iam a caregiver for my 82 year old mother with dementia - not an easy task. After watching your documentary I felt hopeful. We need to speak out to our leaders about funding on projects done by Dr. Tanzi and others.

Comments about PBS The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's DVD:

A real-life story of families struggling with this debilitating disease. I require my sophomore nursing students to watch this film. It brings to light the stress and sadness this disease does to families, caregivers, and the patients.

Riveting documentary on Alzheimer's.. a few cases portrayed, associated care-giver and family stresses, the science of the disease and best of all hope for a cure one day soon based on recent research. A must see for anyone who has a loved one with dementia.

Comments about PBS The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's DVD:

I highly recommend this video for anybody who Alzheimer's Disease has touched their life but this was produced 2004 and without viewing the followup program it may leave you hanging with questions that have, and are now being answered. [...]

Wonderfully Informative Program for All

Comments about PBS The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's DVD:

I viewed this progam on 8-3-08 when aired in early morning hours. I was so glad I just happened across it in flipping through the channels. My mother at the age of 69 is experiencing worstening dimensia that has come on very quickly. This program helped me understand so much about the affects of dimensia/Alzheimer's Disease, and the progressive research that has been done in regard to it. I was so excited about what I had seen and learned, I called my parents and told them about it the next day, and am ordering the DVD to share with them when I go to visit them in a couple of weeks. I believe this program will help all of us and others in our family to have a better understanding of the disease. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about Alzheimer's Disease, and studies done in regard to it. THANK YOU to all who are doing such diligent research in this area, and for whoever put this progam together! It gave me hope.

Thank you for this information

Comments about PBS The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's DVD:

I am the youngest of three now living and caring for my 83 year old mother who is now in the early stages of Alzheimer's (sister and brother live out of state). I need to say a special thank you to those who made this documentary available because I really thought I was in a losing battle! What peace I have felt all day after viewing this documentary last night! Although we are still in the early stages and I know our road will be long and bumpy but you have helped me to reach a better place of understanding. I am purchasing a DVD copy to give to my mother's doctor so that others who might not have the opportunity will now be able to learn! Write your local government about for support!
