In the Shoes of a Forgetful Father

This touching video submitted for the 2011 Neuro Film Festival from the American Academy of Neurology Foundation chronicles the life of Jim Tilston and his family’s effort to confront his diagnosis of Frontal Temporal Lobe Dementia (early onset Alzheimer’s disease).

In equal parts touchingly sad and humorous, this sweet video honors one family’s love for their father and their dedication to care for him to the best of their ability for the past 15 years.
