Utah Leads with Highest Rate of Alzheimer's
More than 5 millions Americans have Alzheimer's disease; including 30,000 in Utah. Utah has the highest rate per capita of the disease.
“That number is only going to increase as the Baby Boomers get older,” Jeremy Cunningham said, Utah Alzheimer’s Association spokesperson. “When you think, ‘What am I going to do with mom or dad?’ and this is a daily task, it’s overwhelming. You have to build a support network.”
