Movies About Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Thanks are due to the author of this article, linked above, who provides a list of movies with an Alzheimer’s or other dementia story line.  How timely, as my husband and I were discussing last night how a few of the novels we’ve read recently have an Alzheimer’s story weaved through the book.

I told my husband that this seeming anomaly is not surprising due to the pervasiveness of the disease in so many households throughout the world.  In my family, my father died from Alzheimer’s complications in 2007, and my sister-in-law died at the age of 69 from mixed dementia.  I know there are many of you who at the very least know of someone affected by the disease.
