How Alzheimer's affects the workplace

More than 15 million Americans are caring for an individual with Alzheimer's or a related dementia.

44 percent of family caregivers of people with Alzheimer's are employed full or part time.

Millions of baby boomers are approaching the age of greatest risk, and the human and financial costs of this fatal disease will be overwhelming.
Alzheimer’s can have a devastating impact on people at work – not only on those with the disease, but on the people who care for them. The time to be silent about Alzheimer’s disease in the workplace is over.

People in the workforce make tremendous contributions to causes that are meaningful to them. When you mobilize your workforce through our Champions at Work program, you are helping to improve the lives of millions of people living with Alzheimer’s and the millions more who care for them. Here are some great ideas for you to make a difference in the workplace.
