Grace: The Alzheimer's Documentary

 

"Grace" stands out as the definitive documentation of Alzheimer's disease, both following the progression of the disease and the inspirational care giving efforts of her husband over a period of seven years. The documentary starts in the early years of the disease when Grace Kirkland is already having short term memory problems, experiencing catastrophic outbursts when frustrated, and starting to get lost in parking lots. Her husband Glenn, makes sure to involve Grace in many of the things she has always enjoyed and with his help, her love of life, shines through the disease of Alzheimer's. 

Four years later, Grace is having significant difficulties and often remains silent for days. Her rare words are greatly appreciated by her husband who has now assumed many more care giving responsibilities. Glenn, determined to keep Grace as active and independent as possible, uses cueing, and step by step guiding to involve her with dressing and eating.  
 
Three years pass and Grace no long has words. She has difficulty walking, and it's questionable if she can recognize Glenn. Weeks later, hundreds of people attend her funeral and as the choir sings "Amazing Grace," Glenn mourns the woman he has cared for with unrelenting love. Far more than a clinical study portraying the progression of dementia and the role of a caregiver, Grace inspires us to remember the meaning of unconditional love.
