Jerry Lansdowne was once a songwriter for Johnny Cash, and he now writes a song in honor of the memory of his mother who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. They lyrics of the song “I’m Not Me Anymore” tell the story of Alzheimer’s disease through that of the sufferer. Losing their memories and relationships is the haunting reality of this disease that many have to face.
Watch the video below to hear his heartfelt song.
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.
