The Forgetting

A Portrait of Alzheimer's - PBS Show Site

The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's is a  Primetime Emmy award-winning documentary that takes a dramatic, compassionate, all-encompassing look at the growing epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Forgetting's site was originally launched in 2004 to coincide with the original airing of the show. The original site, also produced by Gorton Studios, received much media attention and was described as "extremely thorough", "easy to navigate" and "the best Alzheimer's site out there". In the intervening years, the research on Alheimer's has progressed and with the shows re-broadcast (also in August 2008) came an opportunity to redesign and rework the site to reflect the best current understandings of the disease.

The new site covers all the basics of Alzheimer's Disease, contains over 6 hours of online video (in both English and Spanish), hosts RSS Feeds from reputable news sources and a offers hundreds of links to vetted, well-established resources on specific topics, from support groups to diagnosis to scientific news.
