Louis Theroux: Extreme Love – Dementia

From the poster: "The second part of this two-part series looking at the way family cope living with dementia. Some of this is heart-wrenching."

Louis Theroux, the intrepid BBC broadcaster/journalist/documentarian is back and better than ever with his Extreme Love series. As one of the big retirement destinations for middle class Americans, Phoenix Arizona has also become a capital of dementia care. Louis visits the city in order to spend time in state-of-the-art care home Beatitudes and with home-based carers, whose love is tested by a condition that steadily erodes the personality and character of their partners.
