Fact: According to the Alzheimer’s Foundation, it is estimated that as many as 5.1 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s disease. More than one in seven individuals with Alzheimer’s live alone. Individuals with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias who live alone are exposed to higher risks including inadequate self-care, malnutrition, untreated medical conditions, falls and wandering from home unattended.
