Aging and the Alzheimer Disease

Research output: Other contribution


The elderly population is one of the fastest growing populations. In 2018, it was estimated that the aging population occupied 15% of the population; it is expected to increase further to 20% of the population by 2040 (Panno, 2005). However, that proportion is expected to rise to two in ten by 2050. Naturally, there is a growing concern over how society will create the resources to deal with the needs of today’s growing elderly population and Alzheimer disease. Sources of social support among the elderly and Alzheimer disease could be better understood, especially in the current environment of social welfare spending cuts that threaten the family life upon which many elderly depend.
