Home Care Businesses Fill Void As Alzheimer's Care Units Decline
Date:4/15/2010

Home Instead Senior Care predicts that resources will not keep pace with an increasing number of Alzheimer’s patients forecast in the decades ahead. The landscape is poised for the development of businesses that would help those suffering from this disease and their stressed-out families.

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) April 15, 2010 -- Recent industry statistics released by the Alzheimer’s Association foretell a sobering future for U.S. seniors, many of whom are destined for a life dealing with the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease. What’s more, these same older adults and their families could soon be facing shortages of resources to help their seniors stay at home.

According to the recently released Alzheimer’s Association’s 2010 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report, 5.1 million people in the U.S. aged 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease. That number is expected to reach 7.7 million by 2030, more than a 50 percent increase.


Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and, at present, irreversible brain disorder that is characterized by a steady decline in cognitive, behavioral and physical abilities severe enough to interfere with everyday life and necessitate full-time care, according to industry experts.

As the disease progresses, physical problems may include loss of strength and balance, and diminishing bladder and bowel control. As more and more of the brain is affected, areas that control basic life functions, like swallowing and breathing, become irreversibly damaged, resulting eventually in death.

Home care is growing as a result of the increasing incidence of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, said Paul Hogan, Co-Founder and CEO
