Alzheimer's and Dementia Care

Dementia is a disease that is characterized by loss of brain abilities, causing decreased cognitive function.


Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, and affects the memory, thinking and behavior of an estimated 5.8 million Americans, according to the Alzheimer's Association.  More than 16 million Americans provide 18.5 billion hours of unpaid care. 
 

Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease typically start to set in when the patient is over the age of 60. When symptoms such as forgetfulness or thinking problems develop before age 60, it is classified as early onset Alzheimer's disease.  More than 200,000 americans under the age of 60 suffer with this illness.
