As a result, people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers must figure out how they’ll pay for care. Social Security benefits and services are vital to people with early-onset Alzheimer’s who are unable to work and have no other source of income.
For more than a decade, Social Security has included early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in the list of Compassionate Allowances program.
