"There are no easy solutions. Just simple ones."

No-one is more surprised than I am to have received official termination confirmation of our health policy with KP. I don't intend to write the name to avoid ads for KP courtesy of Google. I think it is fair to say that I am now wary of the fact that blogs are scanned for key words.

The matter of the escalating costs associated with Alzheimer's care should be cause for serious concern for everyone. There has been a 350% increase in the numbers diagnosed with it. If the cost of this illness can potentially bankrupt Medicare what will it do to the families dealing with it now and to those in the future?

Perhaps instead of looking to failed models like Kaiser, Blair and others should consider bottom-up alternatives like the PATMOS clinics.
