Banner Alzheimer's Foundation

There is a new standard of care.

More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease today. By 2050, that number could exceed 16 million. At Banner Alzheimer's Institute, the focus isn’t on grief. The focus isn’t on fear. The focus is on the groundbreaking research and care that will get us to the goal of ending Alzheimer’s before another generation is lost.

Banner Alzheimer’s Institute has introduced a new standard of care that provides ongoing hope and help for people with Alzheimer’s/dementia and their families. But caring for patients with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia can cost as much as three times that of a patient without memory issues. Due to the nature and frequency of care, physicians at BAI spend more time with each patient than is reimbursable, and third-party insurance providers do not fully compensate for non-medical care.
