In 2016, when we began production on Awakening from Alzheimer’s, time was of the essence. As the rates of Alzheimer’s and dementia continued to skyrocket, our mission was to reach as many people as possible with the message that there was a path to reverse the course of this disease.
This series was the first to kindle hope in hundreds of thousands of people around the world who were facing the scourge of Alzheimer’s and dementia head-on in their own lives.
Since then, we’ve made incredible progress against powerful odds.
However, our mission is far from over.
We are currently staring down an epidemic the likes of which the world has never seen.
We now know that nearly every minute of every day, another person over age 65 develops Alzheimer’s Dementia. What’s alarming is that the incoming wave of Boomers crossing this threshold is at an all-time high – nearly 4 million Boomers will turn 65 in this year alone!
The math is chilling.
Clearly it isn’t enough to simply offer hope to those already touched by this insidious disease.
We’ve now expanded our mission in so many ways.
We set out this year to educate and inform the world that the path toward cognitive decline is not inevitable, if you have a plan and know what to do! No matter if you’re 45 or 75, it’s never too late to take steps to protect yourself or the ones you love.
