If you are over the age of 60, disabled or a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, you may be eligible for a variety of services. Many of these service programs are provided by the Morris County Division on Aging, Disabilities and Veterans, State and County Agencies, and through private Foundations and Charities. 

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and the Department of Human Services have established a “one-door” access to services that will help people age in place. In New Jersey, this is called the Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) and/or Area Agency on Aging (AAA).

alzheimers

June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month


Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's disease.

Of the estimated 5.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2017, an estimated 5.3 million are age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 and have younger-onset Alzheimer's.

  • One in 10 people age 65 and older (10 percent) has Alzheimer's dementia.
  • Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's are women.
  • African-Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer's or other dementias as older whites.
  • Hispanics are about one and one-half times as likely to have Alzheimer's or other dementias as older whites.

Because of the increasing number of people age 65 and older in the United States, particularly the oldest-old, the number of new cases of Alzheimer's and other dementias is projected to soar. Today, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's dementia every 66 seconds. By mid-century, someone in the United States will develop the disease every 33 seconds.

Help is available


If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or a related dementia, you are not alone. The Alzheimer's Association is the trusted resource for reliable information, education, referral and support to millions of people affected by the disease.
