Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia. It is a disease that effects the brain, but tears apart the lives of the afflicted and their loved ones. Alzheimer's is often overshadowed by other important diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Discotek.ca is interested in raising awareness and contributing to the research to find a solution. Here are some facts that might convince you do the same:

  • Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. [Source]
  • 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or some other dementia. [Source]
  • Alzheimer's is most common in Western Europe (North America is close behind). [Source]
  • In 2015, Alzheimer's and other dementias will cost the United States $226 billion. By 2050, these costs could rise as high as $1.1 trillion. [Source]
  • It is the only cause of death in the top ten in America that cannot be prevented and cannot be cured. [Source]
