This is a touching documentary that tells a story about Alzheimer’s like it has not been told before- from the point of view of a patient, her family, experts and doctors. I give it two thumbs up!

Kathy Ritchie and her Mom
Kathy Ritchie is the founder of the blog My Demented Mom. Kathy feels and speaks about the raw emotions of dementia from a daughters perspective. I embrace her for her courage and honesty and hope others can learn from her struggles via her Mother’s memory loss. As a writer, Kathy started the blog in 2007 as a means of coping with her mother’s illness and expressing her own frustrations and struggles with her mom’s diagnosis and the toll on both her and her family…. she also wanted to share her experiences with other young adult caregivers who are navigating life, career, relationships, while dealing with a terminally sick parent. She has been learning to cope with her mother’s progressive disease for the past 7 years. Kathy was 27 when her mother began to exhibit signs of dementia. Her mother has been “diagnosed” frontotemporal dementia. She is now in a nursing home. Kathy is also a contributing author in the new book, THE MOMENT by Larry Smith of Smith Magazine
