Today, 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease (AD) dementia. Estimates suggest this number will nearly triple by 2050. To accommodate the burgeoning aging population, policies must provide support for individuals already living with dementia AND incorporate scientific findings to support people at risk for developing dementia that may be able to alter their disease trajectory.
