Actor Seth Rogen and his wife, Lauren Miller, have a personal connection to Alzheimer’s disease. Lauren’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when she was only 55 years old. The diagnosis forced her to retire from teaching. Lauren’s father is the primary caregiver to Lauren’s mom. Lauren and Seth believe that Alzheimer’s disease needs more attention in order to increase awareness and research so that they can find a cure.
Watch the video below where they speak to Larry King about their experience.
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.
