Alzheimer's and Dementia in UK-Based Black People

Further to my blog on the fact that African Americans are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's disease, the Alzheimer's Organisation produced a report in July of 2013 on the impact of Alzheimer's and dementia on BAME ("Black and minority ethnic") communities in the England and Wales.  

Based on census data, there is an estimate of nearly 25,000 people with Alzheimer's from BAME communities in England and Wales. 

This number is expected to grow to nearly 50,000 by 2026 and over 172,000 people by 2051. This is nearly a seven-fold increase in 40 years, as compared with a doubling of the figure for the overall population.  

These figures reflect the ageing  BAME population.,  

Alzheimer's and dementia cause a lot of suffering.  However, they are not inevitable.  We routinely eliminate Alzheimer's and dementia using Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT).  For  more about this, see Freedom from Alzheimer's and Dementia
