General Hospital's Max Gail addressed his tenure on the show and the Alzheimer's storyline via his Facebook account managed by Sue and his family members.

His post noted:

This post is about my wonderful 2.5 years playing Mike on GH,  who comes back into his son’s life in the early stage of Alzheimer’s and goes through denial, diagnosis, decline, disasters, and finally dying all with the help and love of his family...that’s for those who don’t know GH.

    For those who do, of course, I came into a world and family that was long established when Barney Miller started. Some of the actors and crew go back that far. I was welcomed into that place by actors, crew, and audience even though the character had been played very well by now-retired actor Ron Hale. The writers had created a backstory that Mike had come to terms with his long time gambling addiction through Gamblers Anonymous and was a “new man,” so to speak, with a new challenge. That’s how I hit the ground running with Maurice Benard who has played Sonny for two and a half decades, and all the other wonderful GH people, and started exploring the path of Alzheimer’s and the world of General Hospital one day at a time storytelling with a deeply engaged audience and an openness to emotional life that is universal but often left out of comedy and action entertainment.
    
I had played an Alzheimer’s sufferer in a play called “The Prodigal Father” by Larry Dean Harris, and almost immediately I got guidance and validation from the GH circle sharing their personal experiences...Jimmy in sound, Alice in wardrobe, Lisa in casting...so many open heartfelt offerings. And I had some experiences of my own with loved ones.

      Nothing, however, has prepared me for this outpouring of shared experiences as we have gotten to the end of Mikes life, if not his story, in a beautiful collaborative effort by writers, directors, actors...by everyone...to honor all the dimensions we could...social, scientific, spiritual, scriptural...this outpouring on this page of your experiences with your loved ones. I’ve been trying to read them all and respond, at least with an emoji. I’m not keeping up, yet I feel that connection and I hope you are feeling it with each other.
      Soon Sue and I will be inviting you to “lap in,” I call it, to meet online in a circle to share stories and support...what’s in our laps...and how we can work together in these troubled times for the good of all.
      One last note, and I promise future posts will be less long and more frequent. I agreed last year to be an ambassador for Project Lifesavers International. Started twenty years ago but now retired cops who used tracking technology to locate people who might wander before expensive searches reach sad endings. They have saved thousands of lives by bringing communities and police departments together to create these effective programs. Perhaps your community has this. Certainly, they could.
