Post Local group member blogging- LBD father+healthcare reform
You might be interested in reading local support group member Craig Wiesner's two blog posts about his LBD father in the context of the healthcare reform debate:

(note: this second post includes the new LBDA TV commercial)

Craig's father has received terrific care at the SF VA.

I haven't seen the commercial on TV yet.
pop has been getting REALLY GOOD care at the VA hosp in Birmingham, Al. The hosp is SO VERY different to what it was 20yrs ago. Then it was filthy and poorly run. All of his appointments are on time. I used to think that a hosp in Huntsville, Al was the best but I changed my mind after pop's hosp stay in late June. pop is on 17 prescriptions and I order them online. We don't even know what the meds cost. I think God everyday for the VA. When pop used Medicare, it was a joke!
