Peg McCusker, whose husband has Alzheimer’s disease, talks to Faith Gibson about the gradual realisation that something was wrong, and how she copes day by day with someone who is unable to remember anything or do the simplest tasks. Picture quality below average, but included because of the value of the subject matter.
This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes, medical procedures and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless.
