- This year, the first wave of baby boomers are turning 65 – an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease comes with an aging population.
- The Alzheimers Associaiton has a new report, “Generation Alzheimer’s: The Defining Disease of the Baby Boomers,” which provides light on the current Alzheimers’ crisis.
- It is estimated that up to 10 million baby boomers will develop Alzheimer’s.
Starting in 2011, more than 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day. It is estimates that 1 out of eight of them will develop Alzheimer’s – a devastating, costly, heartbreaking disease.
- According to the new Alzheimer’s Association Alzheimers is the only cause of death among the top 10 diseases in America that is without a way to prevent, cure or even slow the progression of the disease.
- “Most people survive an average of four to six years after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, but many can live as long as 20 years with the disease. As the disease progresses, the person with dementia requires more and more assistance with everyday tasks like bathing, dressing, eating and household activities,” said Beth Kallmyer, senior director of Constituent Relations for the Alzheimer’s Association. “This long duration often places increasingly intensive care demands on the nearly 15 million family members and friends who provide unpaid care, and it negatively affects their health, employment, income and financial security.”
- In addition to the toll Alzeimers will take on people, over the next 40 years Alzheimer’s will cost the USA $20 trillion. That amount is enough to pay off the national debt and still send a $20,000 check to every man, woman and child in America.
- An even scarrier statistic is that while today someone in America develops Alzheimer’s disease once every 69 seconds, by 2050 someone will develop the disease every 33 seconds.
- We need the federal government to commit to changing the Alzheimer’s trajectory. “Alzheimer’s – with its broad ranging impact on individuals, families, Medicare and Medicaid – has the power to bring the country to its financial knees,” said Robert J. Egge, vice president of Public Policy of the Alzheimer’s Association. “But when the federal government has been focused, committed and willing to put the necessary resources to work to confront a disease that poses a real public health threat to the nation – there has been great success. In order to see the day where Alzheimer’s is no longer a death sentence, we need to see that type of commitment with Alzheimer’s.”
