Early-onset Alzheimer’s inclusion applauded 


The Social Security Administration (SSA) has announced that it will add early-onset Alzheimer’s disease to its Compassionate Allowances Initiative. The initiative identifies debilitating diseases and medical conditions that meet the SSA’s disability standards for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  Inclusion in the initiative allows for faster payment of Social Security benefits to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. 


The Alzheimer’s Association applauds Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue and the SSA for understanding that the cognitive impairment caused by Alzheimer’s disease leaves individuals unable to maintain gainful employment and deserving of an expedited disability determination.

Now on display at Historical Society


Steamboats and the railroad were bringing travelers to the new city, and vacationers took day excursions on boats to picnic destinations while some folks took strolls along the lakefront; some engaged in games of tennis and golf, while others dressed in their finest attire attended performances at the nearby opera house. This was Kissimmee City during the 1880s and through the early days of the twentieth century.
