There are currently around 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer's. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates the number of people living with the disease will more than double by 2050, and that the cost of care could rise to more than $1 trillion. Long-term care is complicated for many Americans who can’t afford nursing homes or at-home care. Lower cost adult daycare programs could be one solution to helping provide affordable care.
