Terry Pratchett - Living With Alzheimer's
Wednesday, 11th February 2009
9pm to 10pm
Part 2 of 2
Bestselling author, Terry Pratchett, is 60 years old and has recently been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease - but he's not going to take it lying down. He wants Alzheimer's to be sorry that it ever caught him.
In the second film, Terry contemplates his future and the difficulty of facing the inevitable end game. Terry travels across the pond to learn, first hand, how Americans are dealing with the tsunami of Alzheimer's that is threatening their health care to find out if they are closer to beating the disease.
In LA, Terry meets the unlikely doctor who has recently come across a controversial new Alzheimer's treatment which he claims produces remarkable results in minutes, and in New York State he meets one of the leading experts in PCA (Posterior Cortical Atrophy), Terry's variant form of the illness.
He confronts his probable future by visiting a care home devoted to residents with dementia, whilst evaluating the difficult dilemma thousands of carers are faced with when dealing with a loved one who can't look after themselves. Passionately determined to 'name the demon' and rid patients of the shame and stigma attached to this illness, Terry's desire is to find a treatment, if not a cure, which will allow him to carry on writing for as long as possible - he doesn't have any time to waste.
