Alzheimer’s disease affects one out of nine people over the age of 65, and the rate of diagnosis is rapidly increasing.

Health officials estimate there will be 88,000 people living with Alzheimer’s this year in Minnesota.

Cory Wiskow from the Wealshire of Bloomington joined 5 EYEWITNESS News on Thursday to talk about the growing number of people diagnosed with the disease and where families can go for resources and more information.
