Early onset Alzheimers
|Since his diagnoses, at age 50, of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (EOAD) in 2004, Chuck Jackson has made it his goal to inform the American public and politicians in Washington DC about living with Early Stage dementia. Chuck has focused on the changes that need to happen to provide services and care for the burgeoning Early Stage population and the necessary research money for EOAD and Early Stage research.|
As a Board Member with the National Alzheimer's Association’s Persons with Dementia Early Stage Advisory Board, Chuck is well known and respected for his knowledge and understanding of the issues that persons with dementia face. His ability to speak, sharing his experience with others with dementia, has helped them; and caregivers, and family members find a better understanding of the disease.
Support group services for Early Stage patients are badly needed. His current goal is to bring awareness to the needs of people with Early Stage Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
