Q: Who is at risk for Alzheimer's disease?
Alzheimer's disease usually begins in people 65 or older, but in rare instances it can affect individuals as young as 30. Your risk increases with age; an estimated one in eight people over 65 have Alzheimer's disease, and nearly half of people age 85 and older have the disease.
