Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and Company is a Canadian documentary film, directed by Allan King and released in 2005.[1] The film profiles a group of residents at Baycrest Health Sciences, a long term care facility in Toronto, who are suffering from varying stages of dementia.[2]

The film premiered at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival,[3] and was broadcast on television by TVOntario as an episode of the documentary series The View from Here in February 2006.[4] Its first DVD release featured a commentary track recorded by social workers and psychologists, to facilitate the film's use as a teaching tool for health care providers.[5]

The film was named to TIFF's annual year-end Canada's Top Ten list for 2005,[6] and was shortlisted for the Donald Brittain Award for Best Social or Political Documentary, Best Documentary Editing, and Best Documentary Sound at the 21st Gemini Awards in 2006.[7]
