Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias

 

In 2015, Alzheimer’s Disease was the third leading cause of death in San Diego County and an estimated 84,405 San Diegans were living with this disease or another form of dementia. These numbers alone highlight the growing health and well-being issues of San Diego County residents living with these diseases. Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia but all people living with these conditions need access to resources such as caregivers and health care professionals trained in treating any type of dementia. Thus, the definition of Alzheimer’s Disease has been expanded to include Related Dementias as well.
