"Utah policy makers, however, must proceed as if no cure is coming. If Utah
does experience a wave of new Alzheimer's patients, the economic and societal
impacts ought to be planned for and addressed." And this means affordable
care must be available. But Utah's policy makers generally oppose federal
initiatives in the health care area, and don't want to spend locally. The
outlook for us baby boomers is indeed grim.
Alzheimer's is a terrible disease and those who suffer from the disease, and
those who care for them have my best wishes. Let's all hope that someday they
can come up with a way to prevent the disease.
I am caring for two Parents in their late 90's....24/7....My favorite Dance
Partner, 3000 miles away,cares for as many as 15 "Alzheimers" Patients
during each of her shifts.I would like to think that much of this is,,,,
"Railing at the Night".Having Contributed to so much, and
feeling so many Chronic Pains thru-out your bodies, to the point where you can't
Sleep, is the Cause of their Crankiness.Bill
Why is Utah projected to have the highest rate of increase in the coming years?
This would be good to know.As for the statement "it is
impossible to outlaw the disease", our Legislature will do that rather than
really deal with the problem. They do it for sex education and related issues.
Ban it then ignore it. The conservative way.
