James. Thanks for the Post. Indeed this disease has so many costs to families and all of us that it should be a priority!! You are right on with your assessment of the other costs. I quit my career to care for my wife, and the financial burdens have changed my entire life. I am fortunate that we were in really good financial condition and prepared for the possibilities which allowed us to weather the financial impact. That said, our own finances took a huge toll to say the least, and will spend the rest of my working life to try to be ready for retirement. That is a reality for me!
Thanks for posting! Humbled.
