From Perspectives To Struggles, Alzheimer's Family Caregivers Find Strength In Sharing

Caregivers can find more information on how to communicate with their loved ones and others involved in the patient's care at www.caregiveraction.org.  

About Alzheimer's DiseaseAlzheimer's disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder characterized by problems with memory, thinking, and behavior that eventually become severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies, and social life. Every 68 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's disease. The disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer's-associated healthcare costs are also projected to increase from $200 billion in 2012 to $1.1 trillion by 2050.

About the Caregiver SurveyGfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications conducted the online study on behalf of Caregiver Action Network (CAN) and Forest Laboratories, Inc. The survey was conducted among 674 Alzheimer's disease (AD) caregivers between March 28 and April 25, 2011, including oversamples to reach 100 African-American and 100 Hispanic AD caregivers in the total sample. The results are weighted by age, race, and education to reflect the population of Alzheimer's disease caregivers.
