ABSTRACT. This paper draws on previous relevant findings (Bertoux et al., 2016; Cosentino et al., 2014; Moran, Jolly, and Mitchell, 2012; and Ramanan et al., 2017). Using data from Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Disease International, Bloomberg, CDC/ NCHS, Lewin Group, and National Vital Statistics System, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding total cost of care for those with Alzheimer’s, the projected number of people with dementia, age-adjusted death rates for Alzheimer’s disease, by Hispanic origin, race for non-Hispanic population, and sex screening and disease-specific programs for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and for depression among adult day services centers, by center ownership, and percent change in age-adjusted death rates for selected causes of death, and clarify that an increase in early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s would lead to significant savings for the U.S.

Keywords: social cognitive deficit; Alzheimer’s disease; cost of care
