According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are 5.7 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s.

At New Generations, we’re proud to support Alzheimer’s Awareness month and offer Alzheimer’s day care to individuals in South Carolina.

When it comes to Medicare, there are some patients (labeled dual eligibles) who qualify for a Medicare Savings Program or qualify for Medicaid benefits. These dual eligibles can usually take advantage of the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary benefits and be paid first by Medicare, then have the remainder paid by Medicaid.
