Soc.Sec and thier disability programs for disabled elderly taxpayinf seniors is a farce.
Medicare may help a few.
The system is so fraught with complicated procedures,questions, paperwork, that most elderly,
I meann those in their 80's and 90.s give up or dies before Medicaid provides help.

My grandma is 61 and just got diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer's. I had no idea that dementia or things like that could happen that young. It would be really good if we could get her on disability insurance, but what can we do to make sure that her claim doesn't get denied?
