I saw this movie in 1990, when I was training to work in a nursing home. I always think about it. Especially when I heard that Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer's Disease a few years later. Now that President Reagan is gone, I'm thinking about it again.
I had no idea what Alzheimer's Disease was before I saw this movie. After it ended, I was sad and speechless.
The individual with Alzheimer's gets it at a young age (40's)and it all happens so quickly.
It's surprising that they don't show this on T.V. or it's not available to rent. It was really moving. Shirley Jones did an incredible job in this movie.
If it is ever on T.V., please watch it, you won't ever forget it.
