Baby Boomers and Alzheimer’s Disease

The L.A. Times on 7/21 reported “over the next 35 years, about 28 million baby boomers will likely develop Alzheimer’s disease, and the annual bill for their care will balloon from $11.9 billion in 2020 to more than $328 billion in 2040,” according to research presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. Unless a treatment comes along that “could delay or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, the cost of caring for baby boomers with the disorder by 2040 will eat up a quarter of the nation’s total Medicare spending, researchers have estimated.”
Baby boomers, pay attention!! Act now before you have any symptoms of AD. After that, it’s too late to prevent or delay the disease. Read my book, Not Going Gently.
