Alzheimer's Association Releases Report That Predicts Doubling in Number of Californians With Neurological Disorder
Date:2/25/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of Californians with Alzheimer's disease will nearly double to 1.1 million by 2030, with all race and ethnic groups, as well as every region of the state, experiencing dramatic increases, according to a report released today at the State Capitol by the Alzheimer's Association.

The report also contains Alzheimer's statistics for each of the state's 58 counties and paints a similarly urgent picture.

"The numbers in this report don't lie. The state of California will be greatly impacted by this disease as baby boomers age," said Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. "Policy makers will need to work with experts and community members on a plan to lessen the impact of Alzheimer's on our citizens, economy and healthcare systems."

Titled Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures in California: Current Status and Future Projections, the report was funded by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation and supported by the Alzheimer's Disease Program at the California Department of Public Health. It was prepared by the Institute for Health an
