Very moving look at Alzheimer's

Author: LawrenceJoseSinclair from United States
10 May 2010

This deeply moving look at Alzheimer's and it's effect not only on the victims but their families deservedly won an Emmy award for "Non-Fiction Programming". In order to show the different stages of this progressively debilitating illness, Cookson shows many different patients, from one without any symptoms yet, up to a very touching scene of a man at the edge of death, with his family at his bedside. This is not easy viewing, as of course it's not meant to be, I believe the goal is to raise public awareness of the slow and painful erosion of one's mind while those who care are helplessly incapable of easing the symptoms or the suffering involved. Diseases like this beg for increased funding on research from every possible source, and removing restrictions on stem cell research, and for governments to more wisely use their funding for improving the life of citizens rather than squandering it on needless wars and intrusive policing actions in other countries. KUDOS to all involved with this project.
