It was an emotional event in the Capitol as lawmakers and leaders with the New Mexico Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association (NMCAA) delivered their perspectives on a disease estimated now to be directly impacting over a 100,000 New Mexicans.
“I understand the impact and stress Alzheimer’s has on families,” said Senator Richard Martinez (D-Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe). “I was a caregiver for a loved one afflicted with Alzheimer’s and this is a disease that is hard on everyone.”
The occasion was Alzheimer’s Day in Santa Fe, and the venue was the Capitol Rotunda, where a crowd of nearly 100 gathered to hear an executive proclamation followed by remarks from senators, representatives and caregivers as well as the Ombudsman of the Aging & Long Term Services Department, Sondra Everhart.
Representative Jeannette Wallace (R-Los Alamos, Sandoval, Santa Fe) in particular spoke about the “cost on the inside” to families, loved ones and caregivers that is beyond the monetary toll.
