Women impacted by Alzheimer's

Women are far more likely to be impacted by Alzheimer's disease than men.

A report from the Alzheimer's association shows that one in six women, over 6,5 will get it during their lifetime.
    For men, the number is closer to one in 11.

Women are also more likely to be caregivers for someone with Alzheimer's, and to pay a bigger personal and professional price for that care than men do.
