Alzheimer’s disease is a social, medical, and economic crisis. The disease is pervasive in every country and is the largest impediment to independent living for older people. It affects individuals and families as well as whole economies.
There are many reasons to be concerned about developing Alzheimer’s disease. Perhaps it runs in your family, or perhaps you or someone you love has what may be early symptoms. Or maybe you just understand how common dementia is among older people and how life-changing it can be. We want to be prepared, and above all we want to prevent Alzheimer’s if we can.
