Alzheimer's affects millions of us...

The sixth leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s currently affects one in every nine people age 65 or older – roughly 5 million people. By 2050, nearly 14 million (13.8 million) Americans could be living with the disease.

September is World Alzheimer's Month...
