Today, more than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. By 2050 this number is projected to be close to 13 million. One in three seniors dies of Alzheimer’s or another dementia. It is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. In 2019, Covid 19 has contributed to a 17% increase in Alzheimer’s cases.
