Mature Market Experts: more mature market news and stats more often – Dementia – Dementia is one of the most rapidly increasing medical diagnoses in older adults. There are currently 4.5 million Americans affected by Alzheimer’s disease, a number expected to jump to approximately 16 million by the year 2050- nearly quadrupling the rate of the disease. More than half of older adults in nursing homes and other long term care facilities are affected by some form of dementia.

Note: In my opinion, the market for mind-sharpening tools, games, supplements, and drugs to help your brain is unlimited. Fear is a powerful motivator.
