It is estimated that 5.3 million Americans are afﬂicted with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.
That translates into 14% of American’s over the age of 71, and over 50% of American’s over the age of 85.
Alzheimer’s Disease is characterized by symptoms of memory loss, changes in language and personality, making this one of
the most debilitating and progressive diseases with a profound effect on the caregiver. However with the
right tools, education and support, the family caregiver can provide a meaningful quality of life for the dementia client.
