Memory Care

Memory Care

Someone in the world develops dementia ever 3.2 seconds. There were an estimated 46.8 million people world living with dementia in 2015 and this number is believed to be close to 50 million currently. As the number of older Americans grows rapidly, so too will the number of new and existing cases of Alzheimer's.

An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2018, including an estimated 200,000 under the age of 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer's. Family members caring for loved ones with dementia, are a high risk for depression and anxiety, making it difficult or impossible to care for the person affected by dementia.
