 There is 5 million americans with alzheimers now ...researchers have said that by 2020 there will be 7 million and the greatest majority are going to be women
 
Baby boomers are the targeted ones they are saying right now and will do more checking into that ....this is scary for me I AM first a woman ......and secondly a baby boomer ......
 
Alzheimers needs to be looked into more and more IMHO as we are getting so many with this DD it robs us all of our loved ones albeit mom,dad grampa's gramas and so on
 
The good news is MORE ppl are caring for their loved ones at home now more than ever....
 
This is a hard but rewarding thing to do I really believe........IF you can do it
Educate yourselves please and your children so it is being understood more.......IT needs to be
WE are losing the very woman and men that fought for our countries to this horrrid disease of the mind and affecting the body as well in most cases.......
 
Our Seniors are the souls of our existence in my opinion and they are going into this DD at an alarming rate.........Food for thought
 
All Alzheimers Society's would appreciate anything even the smallest gesture or volunteering .......

Lyn,
Could there be more women affected because they statistically live longer and healthy lives then men?
