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.
