According to the National Institute of Dementia, the number of Alzheimer patients aged over 65 surpassed 780,000 as of May 2021, a 10.33% of the population above 65. Worse still, the number goes well over 830,000 when it comes between 60 and 65, a 7.32% of the population in the age group. Alzheimer is a dangerous disease as the patients never go back to where they once were after being diagnosed. In other words, prevention is the best remedy.
