Every 67 seconds someone in America is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s—a disease that affects the brain and is the most common form of dementia. Without a cure or further progress on slowing the disease process, it is estimated that in 2050 there will be up to 16 million with Alzheimer’s—more than triple the total today.

While this challenging illness is incredibly difficult and costly for the individual who is diagnosed, the caregiver who works tirelessly on behalf of their loved one is frequently overlooked. Initially, their work is often to compensate and cover early symptoms to protect and avoid embarrassment.
