It is the most common cause of dementia and usually affects people over the age of 65. World Alzheimer’s Day is celebrated on 21st September through out the world annually.

This year, 2023, World Alzheimer’s Day’s theme is “Never too early, never too late”. The observation of the day underlines not only the pivotal role of Alzheimer’s disease risk factors identification but also the appeasement of proactive risk reduction measures to hamper, and if possible, prevent the onset of dementia.
