In 2015, there were approximately 48 million people worldwide with AD. It most often begins in people over 65 years of age, although 4% to 5% of cases are early-onset Alzheimer’s which begin before this. It affects about 6% of people 65 years and older.
Matthias Koch documents in this short photo essay the very painful moment when his father in law had to move to a retirement home for people affected by Alzheimer, leaving the house in his home village where he had spent 87 years.
