Episode Summary

Seven people living through various stages of Alzheimer's disease are profiled in this verite documentary. Among the emotionally gripping stories: a mother who holds fiercely to her simple lifestyle, yet recognizes that her failing memory is making it more difficult; a woman in a nursing home who believes her reflection in the mirror is her best friend; a one-time computer whiz who writes a blog to chronicle his activities while he still can; and the former host of a kids' TV show, whose wife brings him to a hospice after his body begins to shut down.moreless
