Alzheimer's To Cost $20 Trillion Over Next 40 Years

Answer

The Alzheimer's Association (alz.org) has projected in it's 2010 Report that from 2010 to 2050, the costs will rise from $172 billion to $1.08 trillion!  These amounts represent direct costs of care including Medicare, Medicaid, insurance, and out-of-pocket costs of families.

The Alzheimer's Association reports that the chance of getting this disease for those over 65 is 1 in 8.

The chance of getting this disease if you are over 80 is 1 in 2.

Also noted in the report is the research showing African Americans and Hispanics are at high risk for developing Alzheimer's, about 1.5 times more likely than whites.

There are 11 million who take care of their family member with Alzheimer's at home.  Caregivers should watch their own health by looking for signs of 'Caregiver Burnout' such as depression, anger - especially inappropriate anger, sleeplessness, difficulty with concentration, and an increase in physical ailments
