Women are far more likely to develop Alzheimer's than men, according to a report from the Alzheimer's Association.

Women over 65 have a one in six chance of getting the disease compared to one in 11 for men.

Many women face another major burden from the disease as they're more likely to be caregivers for Alzheimer's patients than men.

The cost of caring for people with Alzheimer's is expected to reach $214 billion this year.
