By 2050, that number is projected to reach nearly 13 million.

Nationwide, about 1 in 9 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s.
In North Carolina, there are over 200,000 residents – age 65 and older – living with Alzheimer’s.
Two thirds of dementia caregivers (66%) also have difficulty finding resources and support for their needs. But there IS Hope.
