Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. In 2015, an estimated 700,000 people in the United States age 65 and older will die with Alzheimer's.

Those with Alzheimer's live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions.
