From Alzheimer's Daily News:


(Source: PBS) - In Danville, CA, the Traditions Alzheimer's Care Unit houses 20 residents - for most life is routine. But for Lee Gorewitz, life is an odyssey.

From the moment she wakes up, Lee is on a quest for something that she can neither articulate nor comprehend. Confined by the limits of her physical boundaries, she scavenges for reminders of her old identity in the outside world.

A total immersion into the fragmented day-to-day experience of Alzheimer's disease, You're Looking at Me Like I Live Here and I Don't is the first documentary filmed exclusively in an Alzheimer's care unit, told from the perspective of someone suffering from the disease.

Scheduled to air on PBS at 10 pm on March 29th, but you should check your local listings.
