This is a Great Movie that Accurately depicts the effects of Alzheimer's Disease on families, as well as, the victim.
23 June 2011 | by rpenland08See all my reviews

This movie was released by Hallmark, in T.V. format nearly 1 year after we learned that my father had contracted Alzheimer's Disease.

Naturally, we were searching for any and all information we could find to help my father, and the family, deal with this devastating disease. As I watched, I was Amazed at the similarities between the behavior of the main character of this movie (played by Ms Woodward) and my father's own behavior at the time. It was like I was watching my own father on television.

As the movie progressed, I came to the realization that my father had contracted a disease that would eventually take his life. For the next few years, as we watched this disease consume him, the movie would flash back anew in my mind and helped to guide me through this. My father finally succumbed to the disease 19 days after his birthday in 1992, 8 years after we first learned he had it. By the time he did, like in the movie, he had forgotten his family. I went to see him 3 days before his death. He had no idea who I was but he held my two year old son in his lap and played with him like a child himself. I was 800 miles from home when I got the call that said he had passed away, which really came as a shock to me, knowing I had seen him happy and playing with my son just 3 days earlier.

I never got to say goodbye to him but I have thanked the Lord above many times for sending this movie when he did to help me get through the ordeal.

This very day, it has been announced that Glen Campbell has contracted this devastating disease. I highly recommend that his family find a copy of this movie and watch it closely, it will help them through it.

I highly recommend it for anyone who has come in contact with this disease and sincerely hope one day a cure can be found for it.
