The present article exposes the relationship between aging and facing Alzheimer's disorders within increasing number of people with special reference to the developing countries. In modern times, many developing countries are benefited of more access to hygiene, medicine, education, communications, social networks, and the like. All such factors have determining roles in people's aging and life expectancy. For example, many Asian countries have doubled or tripled the number of their elderly citizens between 1995 and 2015. Therefore, aging is undoubtedly increasing, while medicaments and geriatrics are not increasing at the same rate-leaving behind increasing Alzheimer's disorders. Trouble is even much more over the age of 65, when one of the two (couple) is dead, and remaining person must self-control oneself. So, what the developing countries need to do, is to further invest on medicaments and geriatrics for the people heading to the age 65 and beyond. It must be accepted as a gerontological fact that aging is ever enlarging and extending-needing further means to put up with that.
