The Cost of Caring for Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s

With new medical advancements, more and more people are being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at an earlier stage in the disease. This ultimately impacts the family, caregivers, and cost of care the patient’s cost of care. According to recent statistics, this impact will only get worse.

Nearly one-half of all caregivers provide care for a senior with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia. Accordingly to the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 5.7 million Americans will be living with Alzheimer’s in 2018. The projected lifetime health cost for an individual is $424,000 per year.

The good news is that with early detection, families can plan for the future cost of care, arranging more time to spend with family, and make legal decisions, while they still can.
