Community Outreach Intergenerational Program

Bridge the generations.

Early-onset Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Increases

We think of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia as a disease effecting older individuals. However, diagnosis rates of early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease tripled between 2013 and 2017, according to a new study.  Early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease jumped 200% among commercially insured Americans between the ages of 30 and 64 over a recent five-year period, a new analysis of Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurer claims shows. “The increase in early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnoses among a generation who typically wouldn’t expect to encounter these conditions for several decades is [...]

Oscars Spotlight: Alzheimer’s

In case you may have missed it, a French animated short film about an artist’s struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease was nominated for an Oscar for best Animated Short Film at this year’s Academy Awards.  As an artist sinks further into dementia, his world begins to appear more like oil paintings that become more abstract as his condition worsens.  It is beautifully artistic and has a compelling real-life experience. The film took nine months to make and features uniquely styled puppets evoking the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh, Alberto Giacometti [...]

Assisted Living Facility Costs as Tax Deductions

Many caregivers of our clients who are residents of an assisted living facility inquire as to the tax deductibility of the costs of assisted living expenses.   The IRS provides rules for deducting certain qualified long-term care costs as medical expenses.
