Alzheimer’s is a complex and frustrating disease that robs people of their memories and families of their loved ones. It’s the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. and affects nearly five million Americans over 65. It’s impact will only be felt more in the coming years. By 2050, the the number of individuals with the disease may triple, and the total cost could be as high 1 trillion dollars.
