It’s never easy losing a loved one, but it’s not any easier losing a loved one when they’re still physically with you. Alzheimer’s disease affects families this way more often than we think. This son watched his mother battle with Alzheimer’s for 10 years, through the struggle and determination to stay connected with his mother, he now has reflected and written a prayer honoring his mother, sharing both the good and bad as they lived through her Alzheimer’s.
Let’s help raise awareness of this debilitating disease to find the care that’s needed for both patients and caregivers!
See 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.
