Grandpa’s got a gun

PWD is one of those acronyms we are going to hear more of. It stands for “people with dementia”. We are also likely to hear more about PWDs and shootings.

Overall we can expect three times the number of dementia-affected people by 2050 than there are today.

In the US about 30% of those aged 65 plus own a gun. Some research suggests that there could be 7.8 to 11.8 million PWDs living in a home with a gun by 2050.
