When author David Shenk wrote The Forgetting, Alzheimer's: Portrait of an Epidemic, he gave us the big picture of Alzheimer's disease. His latest project, "Living With Alzheimer's", a series of four short films created with funding from the MetLife Foundation and in partnership with Cure Alzheimer's Fund, brings us to the personal level. Four world-class directors each take a different perspective when portraying the experience of Alzheimer's, allowing us to see the vastly different ways this disease affects different people. The stories are at once heartbreaking and uplifting, as we see how in each case, the patients strive to make the most of the time they have with their friends, family, and community.
