Watch and learn about the genetics of Alzheimer’s and how it affects families who have seen a trend within their lineage. Let’s raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, this is a disease that does not have a cure but we can make the most of our lives and the lives of our loved ones who have been diagnosed.

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.
