Our Approach in Supporting Adults with Memory Loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease

Awareness of memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease has never been higher than today. More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, and the Alzheimer's Association predict that barring major advances, 11 to 16 million will have it by 2050. 

But living with any form of dementia does not need to entail a bleak and dismal life as seen in the past. Perhaps the most important treatment for anyone living with memory loss is the care and support they receive from family, friends, and healthcare professionals.
