Taking care of your parent who has Alzheimer’s disease is a tough job. When both parents are diagnosed with the disease, the challenge increases immensely. For two twin sisters, that is exactly what happened.
Twin sisters Mollie Miller and Jackie Singer rose to the occasion, and they care for their parents who both have Alzheimer’s disease.

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.
