Marie Shrivers Report On Alzheimers & Caregivers

Marie Shrivers has writteh a new report on Alzheimers. She has come out with a study on Alzheimers with interesting facts on caregivers. There are 10.9 million unpaid caregivers of people with Alzheimers. The biggest percentage of them are women, many being "sandwiched" between their own children and careers. It takes a toll on them emotionally & physically. They suffer from more depression, more illnesses, and more hospitalizations than non caregivers. 40% suffer from the most severe forms of depression.

Caregivers spend 4 BILLION dollars on their own health care costs due to the stress of being a caregiver. If the caregiver is elderly their death rate is 63% higher than non-cargivers. This is not good news with the expectancy of the number of people that will be afflicted with Alzheimers disease to triple to 16 million by 2050. Two-thirds of those will be women. Young men you better prepare now to become caregivers yourself. Please give to Alzheimers research in any way you can, and if you know a caregiver tell them you appreciate what they do. You can hear a little about the research on the ABC link below. Shriver has a book available on the study also.
My mom suffers from Alzheimers here are some photos of her.


These show why some people do not want to put their family in elder care facilities

Thanks for reading
