Can I get disability benefits for Alzheimer's Huntsville Disability Lawyer

Can I get disability benefits for Alzheimer's Huntsville Disability Lawyer

Can I get disability benefits for Alzheimers Huntsville Disability Lawyer: Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. It's the most common cause of dementia.

In Alzheimer's disease, the connections between brain cells and the brain cells themselves degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.

Current Alzheimer's disease medications and management strategies may temporarily improve symptoms. This can sometimes help people with Alzheimer's disease maximize function and maintain independence.

At first, increasing forgetfulness or mild confusion may be the only symptoms of Alzheimer's disease that you notice, but over time, the disease robs you of more of your memory, especially recent memories. The rate at which symptoms worsen varies from person to person. Brain changes associated with Alzheimer's disease lead to growing trouble with: Memory; Disorientation and misinterpreting spatial relationships, difficulty finding the right works to identify objects or express thoughts; declining ability to read or write; trouble concentrating or thinking; and it can cause changes in personality and behavior

Typically we think of Alzheimers as a disease which afflicts the elderly, but the Social Security Administration has included early onset Alzheimer's to their list of Compassionate Allowances, helping speed up the process of obtaining disability benefits under certain instances-see POMS DI 23022.385; however, if you do not "meet or equal" this listing, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.

If you or a loved one lives in or around Madison County, you are suffering from the effects of early onset Alzheimers and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
