Facts and Figures examines challenges around mild cognitive impairment
The new Alzheimer's Association 2022 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures report provides an in-depth look at the latest national and state-by-state statistics on Alzheimer's disease prevalence, mortality, caregiving and costs of care. This year's edition includes a special report examining the challenges that physicians and the American public face in understanding and diagnosing mild cognitive impairment, which is characterized by subtle changes in memory and thinking.

Excessive napping may increase Alzheimer's risk
Older adults who napped at least once a day or more than an hour a day were 40% more likely to develop Alzheimer's than those who didn't, according to a study published in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. Researchers also found that seniors tended to nap longer and more frequently as they age, and Alzheimer's accelerated this change by more than doubling nap duration and frequency. Learn more.

Facing Alzheimer's may cause family conflict
Alzheimer's can bring out many strong emotions in families. As the disease progresses, caregiving issues may ignite or magnify conflicts. Our tips can help families cope with the situation together. Learn more.

The middle stage of Alzheimer's presents challenges
The middle stage of Alzheimer's is typically the longest and can last for many years. We have resources to help caregivers and people living with dementia navigate challenges as the disease progresses. Learn more.
