COUNTY REPORT ON ALZHEIMER'S DETAILS COSTS, TOLLS OF DEMENTIAS

 

Two studies released today show an increasing economic and physical toll of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia on San Diego County families and the region’s health care economy.

The pair of studies, produced by the County’s Health and Human Services Agency, say the San Diego County region can expect the cost to provide care for those suffering and the number of caregivers needed will both balloon by 2030.
