Alzheimer’s Advocates Push For $21M In Annapolis To Make At-home Care Accessible To All

This year advocates for people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are hoping to secure $21 million in state funding for caregivers and their loved ones.

The funds would add to existing programs that fall under Medicare already set up by the state.

Alzheimer’s and dementia affect about 110,000 Marylanders, but that number is expected to grow to 130,000 by 2025, according to the Maryland Department of Health.
