With an aging population more and more people are likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. That can mean not only more issues for them, but also their loved ones and caretakers as well.

Rudolph Tanzi, PhD, from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard medical School said for those adults who would normally be looking forward to their retirement ages, many are being forced to take care of patients in need of medical attention from Alzheimer's and other conditions. With most people living to be at least 80-years-old, and a 50% chance of having the disease by the age of 85, Tanzi called the growing numbers a "recipe for disaster," for future generations.
