Some famous people who have been diagnosed with AD are Ronald Reagan (former President of the United States), Rita Hayworth (actress), and Sugar Ray Robinson (middleweight world champion boxer).

It has been estimated that over 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s Disease. There are currently about half a million Canadians living with Alzheimer`s disease or a related dementia. Estimates for Canada are that one in 11 persons in the 65+ age category has the disease. As well, the incidence in persons 85 years and more is 25%.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
