Honoring Veterans on 11/11, and Caring for Those with Alzheimer's Disease

"Alzheimer's can strike a wide range of ages, but for most of us, our window of greatest risk begins around age 65 and increases for the remainder of our lives," noted Eakin. This means the Alzheimer's epidemic is reaching growing numbers of Vietnam veterans, in addition to the older veterans of World War II and Korea.

The younger veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars may be facing a new risk for the disorder. Thanks to modern medicine, a number of these vets have survived head trauma that would have been fatal in previous eras. New evidence suggests that some of these veterans' injuries may also put them at increased risk for Alzheimer's disease in the future. "It's clear that traumatic brain injury is an important and sorely understudied topic with very clear implications from the sports arena to the battlefield," said Eakin.

Veterans Gonzalo Garza and Frank Fuerst served in the military and later provided caregiving for spouses with Alzheimer's disease. Each wrote a book to share his experiences with others, and both tell their story on the AHAF website.
