MEMORIES FOR LIFE, narrated by Grammy Winner Michael Bublé, follows patients using health data and a holistic approach to turn back the clock and retain their memories.
For patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, no memories are safe — from the recollections of daily responsibilities to their most cherished moments.
MEMORIES FOR LIFE follows six Alzheimer’s patients who are refusing to accept their prognosis, and are turning to a new method, spearheaded by top neurologist Dr. Dale Bredesen. Instead of treating symptoms, this approach studies the health data of each patient to find the root cause of their illness.
Dr. Bredesen, best-selling author of The End of Alzheimer’s, faces constant skepticism from the mainstream medical community, even though many patients following the protocol show signs of reversing their cognitive decline.
MEMORIES FOR LIFE shows the eye-opening results of this life-changing treatment and questions why something with the potential to reverse such a devastating disease is not being embraced by medical researchers.

I Was Always Curious About How Memory Works
In my own life, I saw my grandfather lose his memory before he passed away at age 95. I was happy to see him and communicate with him for so long, but that loss made me realize that our memory is the most important thing.
After I became a film director and made feature films, I realized that I am always writing stories that involve memories, because it’s hard for me to let go of things I love.
The idea for Memories for Life came to me when I met the author who translated Dr. Dale Bredesen’s book, The End of Alzheimer’s, into Japanese. The book details several Alzheimer’s patients who are trying a new method to keep their memories alive. I traveled to meet those patients, and discovered a story I wanted to share with the world — a story that might help each of us keep the things we love.
