The Correo Argentino has issued a stamp to draw public attention to the Alzheimer's disease. Unfortunately, here is no cure for the disease, which worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death. Most often, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer's can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Alzheimer's is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.
The stamp calls not to leave people affected by the Alzheimer's disease alone with their trouble. Relative or companion should accompany, understand and support the sick person each day, as tells the slogan on the stamp.
