Every 67 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s
disease, the most common form of dementia. Today there are
approximately 220,000 Texas seniors living with Alzheimer’s. Sadly,
Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are the sixth leading cause of
death. Some individuals are in the early stage of the disease, and their
families are still recovering from the shock of the diagnosis. Other
individuals have been struggling with the disease for years, and their
family members are exhausted and feel powerless to halt or slow the
march of the disease. The burden dementia places on families is
unimaginable. In 2016, 590,000 Caregivers in Texas provided over 671
million hours of care for their loved ones. We want to support these
family caregivers and help community leaders and professional
caregivers better understand the toll dementia takes on an individual.
