An Alzheimer’s caregiver probably hears the words “I don’t remember” too many times to count throughout the day. When Alan’s cousin was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he decided to record some footage of his cousin Edwin as his Alzheimer’s progressed, and put together this unique video that explores memory and forgetting, and the many ways to say “I don’t remember.”
Watch the touching video below.
Alzheimer’s continues to grow costlier, and the prevalence of this tragic disease only continues to grow. Many American elders depend on Medicare for coverage of treatment they need during their golden years, but Medicare does not cover long-term care for Alzheimer’s leaving family and loved ones to shoulder a care burden currently estimated to be worth over $217 billion.
This cannot continue!
You can help America’s Alzheimer’s patients by signing our petition demanding Medicare step up and cover 100% of long-term care for any person with Alzheimer’s or other dementias whose doctor has recommended it.
