Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. It is the 6th leading cause of death with no known cure. It is not a normal part of aging and because of the increase of those afflicted with the disease, the cost of care is rising.

Tomorrow on PBS for anyone who I dare say wants to know more about the disease, its effect on caregivers, on families, the rising cost of care, and how that will affect us all then please turn the dial, or set your DVR to, Alzheimer’s:Every Minute Counts, as I say welcome to the world that we advocates live in.

Alzheimer’s: Every Minute Counts, premiers tomorrow January 25, 2017, at 10p ET, and it’s an urgent wake-up call about the national threat posed by Alzheimer’s disease. Many know the unique tragedy of this disease, but few know that Alzheimer’s is one of the most critical public health crises facing America. This powerful documentary illuminates the social and economic consequences for the country unless a medical breakthrough is discovered for this currently incurable disease.
