In the US, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease every 67 seconds.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth greatest cause of mortality in the United States,
and there is currently no treatment, prevention, or slowing of the disease’s
progression. With these alarming figures, it should come as no surprise that
families of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease find it difficult to
provide for these people. The good news is that people with Alzheimer’s and their
families can get assistance. Alzheimer’s and dementia patients can live as normally
as possible in memory care neighborhoods or communities created with their
safety and wellbeing in mind.
