VNA is excited to partner with the Alzheimer's Association, St. Louis Chapter as a

Bronze Level Sponsor for the St. Louis Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 10th!

Why we partner with the St. Louis Alzheimer's Association:

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's disease in 2016.

  • Of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's, an estimated 5.2 million people are age 65 and older, and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 (younger-onset Alzheimer's).

  • One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer's disease.

  • By mid-century, someone in the United States will develop the disease every 33 seconds.
