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.
The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia®. For more information, visit www.alz.org or call the 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
