Living with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) as it slowly destroys memory and cognition is devastating for the patient as well as their family and loved ones. Over 5 million Americans aged 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s, a number that is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades. In addition to diminished quality of life for patients and families, this also translates into unprecedented costs. If the current trajectory holds, by 2050 costs associated with AD will increase to $1.5 trillion annually.
