More than 6 Million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that steals minds, memories, and independence.
Alzheimer’s and dementia deaths have increased by 16% during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Scientists now fear that Covid could feed a spike in dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases in the decades ahead.
