Accera, Inc. to Support the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's National Memory Screening Day Through On-line Awareness Effort
Date:8/11/2009

s disease, the most common form of dementia, is a progressive and fatal disease. In the United States, 5.2 million people are living with AD, and it has become the seventh leading cause of death. The disease attacks brain cells, resulting in loss of memory, executive function and language skills.

AD significantly impacts millions of family members and other caregivers - mentally, physically and financially. The National Family Caregiver Alliance estimates that approximately 80 percent of caregivers provide unpaid assistance seven days a week. With the lack of innovative new medications for AD, both patients and caregivers are seeking alternatives to improve quality of life.
