Roughly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s, the most common cause of dementia, a term used for memory loss and the decline of other cognitive functioning. Today, more than 6.2 million Americans 65 and over have Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. As this disease progresses, people living with Alzheimer’s lose the ability to perform simple daily care routines.
One resource that focuses on offering innovative products for people with Alzheimers and dementia is TheElderExpo.com. This site carries products geared for people with Alzheimers and dementia as well as for aging adults such as adaptive devices to help with wandering, balance issues, and fall prevention.
Alzheimer’s disease is not a part of aging. The risk of developing alzheimer’s can occur at any age. This devastating disease leaves those with alzheimer’s and their caregivers constantly searching for ways to live a normal life. While health professionals are working hard to find a cure it helps to win small battles with innovative adaptive aids.
