This is the best video I’ve seen describing exactly what happens inside the brain of an Alzheimer’s Disease sufferer. While there is a great deal being done to understand Dementia related diseases, we need to do more. Did you know that 1 in 3 seniors dies of Alzheimer’s or another dementia related illness? The Alzheimer’s Association predicts that in 2015, Alzheimer’s and other Dementia related illnesses will cost $226 Billion dollars. By 2050, these costs could rise to as much as $1.1 Trillion dollars (an unfathomable sum).
For more information about Alzheimer’s Disease, feel free to poke around our site here at The Senior List. Also, we’d encourage you to visit alz.org where you’ll find all sort of great educational resources, and caregiver assistance. We hope you find this video as informative as we did!
