Alzheimer's Disease by the Numbers
- Number of Americans with Alzheimer's disease: 5.8 million.
- Number of people around the world with Alzheimer's disease: 50 million.
- Frequency of diagnosis in the U.S.: one person every 65 seconds.
- Frequency of diagnosis worldwide: one person every 33 seconds.
- Cost of dementia home care and research to date: $1.1 trillion.
No matter how you look at it, the number of people being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease around the world is astronomical and it is expected to continue going up far into the future. The biggest reasons why this number keeps rising is that not only do we not know what causes Alzheimer's disease, but so far no one has been able to find a cure for it. This leaves many families with no choice but to provide their loved ones with the best dementia home care they can despite their lack of education and training.

Your Loved One Will Do Better at Home
So many Americans labor under the mistaken idea that they don’t have the ability to care for someone who is suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia. This is the primary reason why so many end up living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. However, research has proven time and again that the best place for someone with this disease is in familiar surroundings with their family. Here they can establish a routine that helps to reduce the anxiety and confusion that are the most common symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
