Alzheimer's 2010 Facts and Figures by Angela Geiger

Alzheimer’s disease has no boundaries. It crosses gender, race and age.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association 2010 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report, African-Americans are about two times more likely and Hispanics are about one and one-half times more likely than their white counterparts to have Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In addition, in spite of their heightened prevalence, Hispanics and African-Americans are less likely than whites to have a diagnosis of the condition.

Also in the newly-released report, in 2009, nearly 11 million Alzheimer and dementia caregivers provided more than 12 billion hours of unpaid care totaling $144 billion.

Facts and Figures is filled with up-to-date statistics that expose Alzheimer’s as the public health threat it is today, addressing the growing impact of the disease on the American people – both those living with Alzheimer’s and those providing care to a loved one.
