Specific objectives were: (1) To showcase fully-challenged senior actors, thus attacking the myths and stereotypes of declining ability with age; (2) To educate the public about Alzheimers Disease, i.e., to demystify the disease, thus reducing fear; (3) To raise public awareness of the impact of the disease on its victims and their families; (4) To provide a healing experience for those touched by the disease and to share the burden of care; and (5) To entertain.
