What are you doing on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 10/9c? If you're concerned about the fight against Alzheimer's and dementia – whether on a personal level, or a national one – we recommend that you spend that time watching Every Minute Counts, a new PBS documentary that's been called an "urgent wake-up call about the national threat posed by Alzheimer's disease."
Home Instead Senior Care is proud to be a sponsor of this groundbreaking documentary that interweaves commentary from industry experts with personal stories of families living with Alzheimer's.
Every Minute Counts stresses the urgency of finding a cure, by bringing to light the national economic impact that Alzheimer's will have: threatening to bankrupt Medicare, Medicaid and families all over the country. It also highlights some of the health and safety risks associated with the disease.
You can watch a preview of Every Minute Counts here. For more information about caring for people with Alzheimer's and dementia, please contact us.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
