According to the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and is the only leading cause of death without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progress. Individuals and families caring for those with Alzheimer's and dementia often experience increasing emotional distress as the disease progresses, and more supervision and personal care is required. More than 15 million caregivers provided over 17 billion hours of unpaid care in 2012, resulting in $9.1 billion in additional health care costs of their own due to the physical and emotional impact.
