About the Series
Welcome to LivingWithAlz.org, featuring four short new documentaries about how families persevere in the face of Alzheimer's disease
More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's or a related dementia – roughly 35 million worldwide. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. and the only one of those six still on the rise. While scientists work feverishly to stop it, there is much to be done for families right now. With funding from MetLife Foundation and in partnership with Cure Alzheimer's Fund, we recruited four world-class filmmakers to bring us true-life stories about how individuals and families cope.
