The Alarming Statistics
Every 66 seconds in the U.S. someone develops Alzheimer’s Disease. By the middle of this century, it's predicted someone will develop Alzheimer's every 33 seconds. An estimated 5.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease. The prevalence of this insidious disease is growing. It's currently the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S., and two-thirds of those afflicted with Alzheimer's are women (about 3.3 million).
More than just dementia, Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that affects thoughts, memories, and language. Everyday activities suddenly become difficult to perform for those who have it. Most individuals with Alzheimer’s are cared for by family members, making this a disease that touches everyone in that person’s life. Family members also suffer alongside their loved one who becomes a little less of themselves every day as the disease worsens over time.
