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.
