Dementia Friendly Nebraska Launches New Website

LINCOLN – Bill Gates announced that he will donate $50 million to help fund research to hopefully find a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.

In Nebraska, a new website is giving caregivers the help they need to take care of people with Alzheimer’s.

According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, 33,000 people in Nebraska have Alzheimer’s or a related dementia disease.

But that number is expected to grow, which is why Nebraska wants to provide help now, rather than later.
