Although Alzheimer’s is the sixth-most-common cause of death in the United States, the disease is still shrouded in misunderstanding. Misconceptions are damaging not only to the patient, but also to their loved ones and caregivers.
This video below features five common myths about Alzheimer’s disease. Watch and learn, and then share with your friends so we can end these damaging misconceptions!
Alzheimer’s continues to grow costlier, and the prevalence of this tragic disease only continues to grow.

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.Whizzco
