Short Film Captures Alzheimer’s Experience, Encourages Early Diagnosis

This poignant short film is more than just a mini documentary about the Alzheimer’s experience — it’s a work of art.

Though fictional, “Remember” captures a heart-wrenching moment between a man with Alzheimer’s and his wife as they discuss his feeling many Alzheimer’s patients have of living in unfamiliar territory, away from the people they love — like a young boy walking alone through a strange, empty house.

Though its tone is melancholy, “Remember” is a powerful reminder to embrace the present, and a call to action for early diagnosis. Take a moment to share it with your friends and family, and to appreciate the joy that exists in the everyday.
