AD affects 5.5 million Americans age 65 and older today - 380,000 of those individuals are Texans.
Texas ranks fourth in the number of AD cases and second in the number of AD deaths.
In Texas, 1.4 million unpaid caregivers provided care to the 380,000 individuals with AD in 2017. This equates to 1.6 billion hours of unpaid care at a cost of $20.2 billion per year.
