Alzheimer’s is still a disease shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding. We still don’t know what causes it or what exactly we can do to prevent the disease.
But one thing seems to give the brain a workout like none other: playing music.
Watch the video below to learn how Glen Campbell’s musicianship likely helped him postpone the more severe symptoms of Alzheimer’s in an intriguing new documentary: I’ll Be Me.
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.
