Alzheimer's is a disease that attacks the brain. It is the most common form of dementia.  Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.    It is the most common cause of Dementia for people 65 years and older.  In 2016, it is estimated that 5.3 million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s disease, including 5.1 million over the age of 65 and 200,000 over the age of 85. By 2020 that number is expected to balloon to 7.1 million, a 40 percent increase in less than a decade.
