Kathmandu: Nearly a half-million New Yorkers will be diagnosed with some form of Alzheimer’s disease within the next three years.
Currently, an estimated 410,000 state residents have some form of Alzheimer’s. A recent state study found that, given the increase in residents in their 80s, the number of Alzheimer’s patients is expected to increase to 460,000 by 2025, as reported by the New York Daily News.
Tips on how to brace for the future uptick will be discussed at a special educational conference in Manhattan on Wednesday put on by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
It’ll be the first in-person educational conference held by the Alzheimer’s Foundation since the pandemic.
