The Forgetting Alzheimer's disease touches nearly every American family.

The Forgetting »»»

Alzheimer's disease touches nearly every American family, wiping away vast stores of personal memories and human connections. This two-hour special, based on the best-selling book by author David Shenk, is aimed at helping Americans better understand and cope with this fearsome disease. The centerpiece is a 90-minute documentary: the first television program to tackle the entire spectrum of the Alzheimer's epidemic - the firsthand tragedy, the rising numbers, humankind's age-old fascination with dementia and the worldwide effort to find a cure. Three victims and their families bring viewers up close to the intense, real-world experience of Alzheimer's disease. Linda Hunt narrates.

An informative half-hour program, hosted by David Hyde Pierce, followed the documentary and leads viewers to local and national experts and resources.
