In a World Where 1 in 3 Seniors Develops Alzheimer’s, This Research Program Aims to End the Epidemic

For more than 20 years, GreaterGood has raised millions each year to impact lives around the world, and we are so grateful for your support. Every daily click at GreaterGood.com helps us continue with vital projects around the world.

Alzheimer’s Care and Research is just one of these important projects.

In the United States alone, there are more than five million people living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most common type of dementia in seniors, interferes with a person’s memory and their ability to think and process information. Symptoms of the disease slowly worsen over time and can even include behavioral problems such as aggression and violence on top of the already frustrating issue of memory loss. Eventually, a person with this disease will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, dress, and even breathe on their own.

There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and although some treatments are available, none of them work long-term, and they only treat symptoms, not the root cause of the condition. At this time, everyone who develops Alzheimer’s eventually dies of the disease unless they die of something else first.

One in three seniors will develop Alzheimer’s disease during the course of their life. Almost everyone on the planet has been impacted by Alzheimer’s or another dementia in some way. This is an epidemic of epic proportions, and it’s only getting worse. That’s why we’ve got to work even harder to find a treatment or cure for this disease and try to improve the quality of life of those unfortunate individuals who already suffer from it.

Incredible research into Alzheimer’s causes and treatments is already happening, and each day, our knowledge of this disease is increasing. As time goes on, we get closer and closer to understanding how Alzheimer’s works and what we can do to correct the problem so that more people can live their lives free from dementia. However, without continued funding, this research cannot continue making the vital breakthroughs that we need to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Together, we can fight Alzheimer’s disease. With your support, we can continue the important research that we believe will one day lead to a more effective treatment or a cure for this terrible and deadly disease.

Every little bit helps, and when you support GreaterGood’s Alzheimer’s Care and Research program, every cent of your donation goes to charity! Donate today to help fund Alzheimer’s research and improve the lives of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease.
