Down Syndrome Health Care Guidelines
The Down Syndrome Health Care Guidelines are based on the 1999 Down Syndrome Health Care Guidelines for Individuals with Down Syndrome as published in Down Syndrome Quarterly (Volume 4, Number 3, September, 1999, pp. 1-16.)
Studies suggest that more than 75 percent of those with Down syndrome aged 65 and older have Alzheimer's disease, nearly 6 times the percentage of people in this age group who do not have Down syndrome.
