For Professionals Who Work with Older Adults


According to the Institute for Dementia Research & Prevention, there are at least 5 million individuals in the U.S. with age-related dementia types. These numbers will only continue to rise with the aging of the U.S. population. It is estimated that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 10 men older than 55 will develop dementia.
