Alzheimer’s Association Responds to News Film Under Development Would Depict President Reagan's Dementia as Comedic Device

The Alzheimer’s Association is appalled that anyone would plan to develop a film that satirizes an individual living with Alzheimer's or another dementia. More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease, and their 15 million family caregivers provide support every day. This disease is not a joke.

Alzheimer's Association

The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
