Americans spend $277 billion a year caring for people with Alzheimer’s


  • Does the higher number of women with Alzheimer’s correlate with longer lifespans? or with dementia prior to Alzheimer’s onset? These costs are probably still underreported as many family members quit jobs to provide care (voluntary care is stated as not in the costs). Does better diagnosis and longer lifespans account for the increase or are the numbers of cases increasing ?
