Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. Patients living with Alzheimer's experience a decline in memory, reasoning and the ability to perform routine daily activities. This disease has an impact, not only on those who suffer from it, but also on the families and caregivers who often experience great physical, emotional and economic stress.
It is currently estimated that more than 35 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's, a figure that continues to grow. According to the World Health Organization, 82 million people could suffer from dementia by 2030 and that number could rise to 152 million by 2050, with Alzheimer's disease contributing to 60-70% of cases.
