Deaths from dementia are on the rise.
That's according to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control.
It shows over 260-thousand Americans died from dementia-related causes in 2017.
Nearly half of those deaths were due to Alzheimer's disease.
Women, whites and older adults were the most likely to die from dementia.
