The Family . . .
Both sides of my family have been ravaged by dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
In the early days of my Alzheimer's research and continuing to this day, senior members of both sides of the family are institutionalized with the disease.
This short film contains 8mm footage that I shot in my boyhood, several of these ancestors fell to Alzheimer's.
The Alzheimer's disease process is still not completely understood, and prior to 2000, the diagnosis of the disease was difficult and often inaccurate. People just developed forgetfulness, accelerated senility, dementia, or the disease process went undiagnosed all together. The disease consistently robbed individuals of a dignified death.
I do not want my parents to be taken with Alzheimer's disease, and much of what this iBTV Channel is about - is how they prevented it and continue to live independantly - they were born in 1917 and 1918 - tested at 83/84 with the same test the Alzheimer's LifePlan offers to you and your family members for free - please consider studying all of the content presented here and on the web page - also that you are welcome to join the Alzheimer's LifePlan online community - participating in the ending of this dreaded disease.
