The increased prevalence of dementia, and its primary cause, Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD), in the U.S. population has resulted from increased survival to the advanced ages and the increasing size of elderly and oldest-old cohorts (e.g., Evans et al., 1989; Hay and Ernst, 1987; Office of Technology Assessment [OTA] 1987). These trends will continue and, without advances in treatment and prevention, dementia and ADRD will increase in prevalence.
