34 million older adults in the U.S. are cognitively impaired – persons with Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, depression and other mental illnesses. Many of them also have other chronic conditions such as diabetes, COPD, or heart disease. They rely on family members and caregivers to help them manage their complex health needs and day-to-day activities.
50% of patients are not diagnosed, and for another 25%, the doctor makes a diagnosis but does not share it with patients and families
Even in the case of a known diagnosis, families do not receive the practical guidance they need ongoing for their particular situation.
The consequences are grave for both patients and families. Older patients with major cognitive impairments have three times as many hospitalizations as other adults, many of which could be prevented with better care at home. They also end up being placed in a nursing home or assisting living community prematurely.
