This Touching Song About Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Will Bring You To Tears!Allison Espiritu
Worldwide 35.6 million people are affected by dementia and the most common of them all is Alzheimer’s. When we think of Alzheimer’s, we usually think of how it’s a type of disease that affects the elderly. Unfortunately not many realize that Alzheimer’s is affecting adults at an even younger age, this is called early-onset Alzheimer’s.
Listen to this touching song below that raises awareness of early-onset Alzheimer’s by Karen Morand, Dale Butler, and Bakhus Saba called “You Are Here”.
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.
