According to the World’s Alzheimer’s report, More than 35 million people around the world are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. Barring a medical breakthrough, the World Alzheimer Report projects dementia will nearly double every 20 years. By 2050, it will affect a staggering 115.4 million people, the report concludes.
“The number of people affected by Alzheimer’s is growing at a rapid rate, and the increasing personal costs will have significant impact on the world’s economies and health care systems. We must make the fight against Alzheimer’s a priority here in the United States and worldwide,” said Harry Johns, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association. “We must take action against Alzheimer’s now.”
Our Home Care Assistance exclusive caregiver training system, the Balanced Care Method, gives key tips that have been proven to reduce Alzheimer’s and dementia-related symptoms while also adding extra years to your life. Inspired by a region in Japan that boasts the highest number of centenarians in the world, the Method gives healthy diet and physical exercise tips, promotes sharp minds and sense of purpose, and encourages seniors to maintain social ties throughout old age.
