Documentary on Alzheimer’s Calls for More Funding of Research
A documentary recently airing on PBS, “Alzheimer’s: Every Minute Counts,” calls for more funding for research into the cause and potential cures for Alzheimer’s. The documentary focuses on the costs associated with care for Alzheimer’s patients, particularly the costs placed on Medicare and Medicaid. Anyone who has personally experienced the costs associated with the care of a loved one suffering from the disease is well aware that these figures can be staggering, and can be devastating to even those who believe they have planned for long term care.
