Stories of Love, Courage, and Hope

Alzheimer's disease is a growing epidemic that touches nearly every American family, wiping away vast stories of personal memories and human connections. It is a reality 20 million American patients, caregivers and families already live with, and a prospect which the rest of us may face.

The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's takes a dramatic, compassionate, all-encompassing look at this fearsome disease and aims to help all Americans better understand and cope with its impact. The documentary weaves together the intense real-world experiences of Alzheimer's patients and caregivers, the history and biology of Alzheimer's and the ongoing struggle to end the disease. David Hyde Pierce hosts a half-hour follow-up program with experts providing practical advice on coping with Alzheimer's disease. At this critical time in our nation's struggle with Alzheimer's, The Forgetting offers insight and context, help and hope.
