Home Health Care: Relief for Dementia Patients and Their Families
The number of people around the world suffering from dementia is now over 46 million, according to The World Alzheimer Report, published by King’s College of London and Alzheimer’s Disease International. Time cites the report, emphasizing that the number is a dramatic increase from the estimated 35 million who were afflicted with the disease in 2009. Researchers warn that if no medical breakthrough happens for the prevention or cure of Alzheimer’s and other dementia, the number could double in 20 years.
