September 21 World Alzheimer’s Day

September 21 World Alzheimer’s Day aims to raise awareness and provide information about the disease.

Alzheimer’s is the feared disease of the modern age. Mostly it occurs in old age. The prevalence rate is 10 percent since the age of 65, but this rate reaches 50 percent over the age of 85. Nowadays, the long lifespan of people causes this disease to be encountered more and more.

Acıbadem Fulya Hospital Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Geysu Karlıkaya stated that Alzheimer’s is only one of the causes of dementia and that there are many false facts in the society about this disease, and that awareness about the disease will relieve the difficult process.
