There Were Times, Dear 1985 Excellent film re Alzheimer's disease
15 April 2006 | by slmacs98See all my reviews

This is and excellent film for anyone with a family member or friend that has been diagnosed with Alzhiemer's. It should be shown in every nursing home to the caregivers and family members of the residents. The actors did a magnificent job in portraying real-life daily experiences and the progression of the disease. I recommend it to anyone with older parents or spouses suffering from dementia. I watched it 10 years ago as a "Special" on TV. When I wanted to find it again, I couldn't recall the name, only that it starred Shirley Jones and the "manager" from the Partridge Family series, as her husband. Thank you for you movie data base, as now I can look for this wonderful film for my family to watch. My mother is suffering from dementia and the grandchildren need to know what it is like in different stages. This film covers it all.
