Don’t Let Alzheimer’s Bankrupt You! Here’s How.

Don’t Let Alzheimer’s Bankrupt You! Here’s How.

      From the moment your mother, father, husband, or wife is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s to the day they pass, their care will cost roughly $340,000- and of that cost, you and your family will likely pay 70% out-of-pocket (around $240,000). With the overall cost, you could buy–and fully pay off–a four-bed three-bath house in the nice part of town; with the cost you’re paying alone, you could buy a luxury Mercedes convertible. And although it may seem the total cost is necessary, it isn’t.

     On top of the hundreds of thousands of dollars you’ll find yourself paying, one quarter of caregivers are taking care of children under 18 simultaneously; over 80% of help provided to seniors with Alzheimer’s is unpaid and unaided; nearly half of people with Alzheimer’s are also afflicted with chronic pain (heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, etc); and seniors with Alzheimer’s have twice as many hospital ($$) visits as other seniors. In summary, you’re likely to soon be financially overwhelmed and tearing out your hair. Unless you try something new.

     CBD has been researched and tested on patients with Alzheimer’s in various testing and studies… and the results always come back the same: better than the average bear. By which I mean: People with Alzheimer’s who’ve taken CBD show less progression of negative symptoms and plaque build-ups than people with Alzheimer’s who haven’t taken CBD. With CBD, the disease can progress, develop, slower and greatly reduce symptoms. And here’s the key: it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. It can prevent problems, and prevent the pricey effect of those problems, before they even begin.

     You’re working from home. Your husband is at the office, your kids are at school, and your mother (who has Alzheimer’s) is watching soap operas in the living room. You’re very busy and check on her every hour instead of every half hour… But then, the next time you check on her, she’s gone. She’s left the house, walked down the sidewalk and into the street, gotten hit by a car, and you find her there, hurt and confused and lost. You take her to the hospital and leave with an astronomical bill. The entire calamity could’ve been prevented with a little help for your mother’s anxiety and fear- with a dose of CBD. Instead of $15,000, you could’ve spent $40 on one bottle of CBD oil–roughly 15¢ for that day’s dosage. You could’ve spent .001% of what you actually spent (and been able to pay your son’s college tuition), while also saving your mother the trauma and pain of a car accident.

     Taking care of someone with Alzheimer’s, or having Alzheimer’s yourself, is devastating, exhausting, and overwhelming as-is… So don’t let it bankrupt you too. You can help your mom/dad/husband/wife and help yourself at the same time- with CBD. They’ll feel better, you’ll feel better, and there’ll be a warm roof over both of your heads. CBD isn’t a cure, but it’s one of the biggest helps you can get– and it won’t drain your bank account. The proof is in the pudding: check out our prices.
