The report estimates Indiana Medicaid spending on Alzheimer's care this year will top $980 million.

A special part of the annual 2018 Alzheimer's Facts and Figures report analyzes the personal and financial savings that an early diagnosis can bring. "Alzheimer's is a burden that's only going to get worse", he said in an association news release. "We must continue to attack Alzheimer's through a multidimensional approach that advances research while also improving support for people with the disease and their caregivers".

By 2025 - just seven years from now - the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's dementia is estimated to reach 7.1 million - an increase of nearly 29 percent from the 5.5 million age 65 and older affected in 2018.

The charity group added: "Dementia not only devastates lives but creates an enormous cost to the wider economy, an estimated £26 billion a year in the United Kingdom alone".

Alzheimer's disease is among the most expensive illnesses in the U.S. There's no cure, no effective treatment and no easy fix for the skyrocketing financial cost of caring for an aging population. At present a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer's every 65 seconds, the report says. An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's.

Analysis by Alzheimer's Research UK suggests a protective jab will cut the number of cases by 394,000 - almost half.

Along with the increasing costs, the report also found Alzheimer's to be increasingly lethal.

He said familial genes are a leading factor for early on-set Alzheimer's, but other health factors attributed to the disease at both early and late stages in life include less education, hearing loss, hypertension, obesity, smoking, depression, physical inactivity, social isolation and diabetes. The number is staggering, especially compared to how deaths from heart disease (which is the leading cause of death in the U.S.) have dropped by 11% in the same time frame.

"Less oxidation could prevent misfolding to a certain degree, perhaps even to the point that it slows the aggregation of beta-amyloid peptides, which is believed to be the ultimate cause of Alzheimer's", Cerrato explained.

"Discoveries in science mean fewer people are dying at an early age from heart disease, cancer and other diseases", said Fargo.

Forty-one percent of caregivers have a household income of $50,000 or less.

The new treatments work by reducing the levels of toxic protein in the brain - a hallmark of the disease. Here in Iowa, the estimated number of individuals with Alzheimer's will be 73,000.

A JAB that halts Alzheimer's disease could be available in three years - but cost the NHS billions.

Among all Americans alive today, if those who will get Alzheimer's disease were diagnosed when they had mild cognitive impairment (MCI) - before dementia - it would collectively save $7 trillion to $7.9 trillion in health and long-term care costs.
