    Earlier this year, I attended a virtual summit on the future of the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The goal is to eradicate this horrible mind robbing illness by 2025. This is of great importance to us as individuals, as well as Americans, because of the burgeoning epidemic of Alzheimer’s. Not only are we losing loved ones but we are also becoming financially challenged. In fact, it’s been predicted that if a way to prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease is not made available to Americans, Medicare may go bankrupt.

    On Sunday night, June 28th, there was a CNN special documentary on Glen Campbell’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Not unlike the film Still Alice, this documentary shared a brave person’s battle with this incurable mind-robbing disease. In both cases, the person degenerated over time in spite of being treated with drugs. So the first point is that drugs currently used to treat Alzheimer’s, which are based on decades old science, are not very effective.

    A new study called Attitudes Toward Aging revealed that 77 percent of Americans are worried about getting Alzheimer’s disease. The study also said that women (77%) are more likely than men (70%) to worry about what will happen to their memory as they age. What that suggests is that both sexes are extremely worried about developing dementia.

    Quite often I'm asked if certain cognitive issues a person has are normal, may be leading to Alzheimer's or if they are a sign that a person already has it. Obviously, if a person has problems, they should go to see a specialist in memory care and have the proper exams.

    I saw Still Alice and it was a very poignant film; one that touches the heart and is a little frightening, too. But remember that it was about early onset Alzheimer’s disease, which is genetic and rare, although it does affect over 250,000 people in the US.

    By Felicity Dryer, guest blogger: Can an apple a day keep Alzheimer's away? Maybe not exactly...but it can’t hurt. As cases of Alzhiemer’s rise and the level of care increases, more and more attention is turning to this disease. Scientists are becoming more knowledgeable about its causes and how we might prevent it.
