A state task force has released recommendations to help prepare Nebraska for a surge in the number of residents living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia in the next decade. About 33,000 Nebraskans 65 and older have dementia, and the number is expected to grow by more than 20 percent by 2025.
AARP is a proud sponsor of the national Age of Disruption Tour that will make stops in Omaha on Sept. 20 and Lincoln on Sept. 21.
