HBO's "The Alzheimer's Project"

By now I 'm sure you have heard of the HBO special series about Alzheimer's Disease that will begin in most communities on Sunday, May 10th. They have done an excellent job of getting the word out. But just in case you've missed it, here's the website and a brief quote from that website:


"THE ALZHEIMER'S PROJECT features a four-part documentary series, 15 short supplemental films, a robust website, and a nationwide community-based information and outreach campaign. A book published by Public Affairs Books was developed by the producers as a companion to the project. HBO will use all of its platforms, including the HBO main service, multiplex channels, HBO On Demand, HBO Podcasts, hbo.com, HBO Channel on YouTube, and DVD sales to support the project. In addition, all films will stream free of charge on hbo.com and will be offered for free on multiple platforms by participating television service providers."

This is an important event for those of us in the caregiving community. Don't miss it!
