Alzheimer’s Death Reporting is Up

By Clearday Research Team

Alzheimer’s and Dementia death reporting numbers have continued to increase. Notable organizations, such as the World Health Organization, recognize Alzheimer’s as a public health priority and its efforts to increase awareness of the vicious disease comes in due time. 

According to NIH, an estimated 6.2 million Americans aged 65 and older are living with dementia today and this number could grow to 13.8 million by 2060. According to the latest year for which data are available, 121,499 deaths from Alzheimer’s become the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the fifth-leading cause of death among Americans aged 65 years and older. Between 2000 and 2019, deaths from stroke, heart disease and HIV decreased, whereas reported deaths from AD increased more than 145%. 

Although age, genetics and family history cannot be changed, other risk factors can be changed or modified to reduce the threat of cognitive decline and dementia. That’s why at Clearday™ we make it our mission to create transformative, accessible solutions to those who require a high standard of care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia. See how Clearday™ helps here.
