Fading Away - Alzheimer's

Fading Away - Alzheimer's (KVIE ViewFinder documentary)
Every 67 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, a type of dementia with no known cure. As scientists race to unlock the secrets of the mind, patients and their caregivers take us inside their experience with this memory-robbing disease.
