           Before you watch, read this! If you watch the PBS documentary on Alzheimer’s this week, you need to read and share this commentary from Dr. Bill Thomas’s Changing Aging. The documentary is alarmist and biased. I am appalled that PBS chose to ignore the many options for Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers that have been developing over the last 10 years in music and art therapies, as well as inclusive housing. When the “good” guys get it wrong, where do you go?

Read…Reflect…Learn…Share!

“This week PBS will air Alzheimer’s: Every Minute Counts, a documentary framed as “an urgent wake-up call about the national public health threat posed by Alzheimer’s disease.” While it’s true Alzheimer’s disease poses a public health challenge, much of the suffering experienced by people living with dementia is socially imposed on them by the tragedy-only narrative exemplified in films such as this.”
