If you think you’ve heard more about Alzheimer’s Disease in recent years, it’s not only because you’re getting older: in fact, the incidence of Alzheimer’s is increasing and the data surrounding this increase are troubling and even frightening. Currently, over 5 million seniors 65 and older have been diagnosed, and the death toll from this disease has doubled in the last 15 years. Estimates are that 10% of all seniors now have this diagnosis. And for family caregivers, some 15 million of them in the US, the emotional and financial burden is enormous- costs for caring for Alzheimer’s patients are currently estimated at over 1/4 trillion dollars, and are projected to skyrocket to 1.1 trillion dollars by 2050. In fact, in a new report put out by the Alzheimer’s Association, concerns are raised that these rising costs could bankrupt the Medicare program. Clearly this constitutes a major public health crisis, yet compared to other diseases, the money invested in Alzheimer’s research is relatively modest, and there are no cures or even new useful therapies currently in site.
