BrainGuide & Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, with 6.2 million people in the United States living with Alzheimer’s disease today. If the current trend continues, 12.7 million Americans 65 and older will have Alzheimer’s by 2050.

Alzheimer’s often starts 5, 10, or even 20 years before symptoms appear, meaning early detection and a focus on brain health are key. That is why BrainGuide has developed a memory questionnaire and collected resources to help you better understand Alzheimer’s and what best next steps you can take.

Whether you are concerned about your own brain health, that of a loved one, or if you are an Alzheimer’s caregiver, BrainGuide is here to provide you with the tools you need to move forward confidently.

About the Questionnaire

The BrainGuide memory questionnaire does not provide a diagnosis, but it can help guide you toward information and resources that inform the next best steps you or a loved one can take.

The memory questionnaire can be self-administered or filled out by a caregiver or someone close to you. It takes about 10 minutes to complete and upon finishing, you will be directed to a page with relevant resources that can help you better understand Alzheimer’s, your brain health, and recommendations on next steps.

Privacy is at our core. No information is recorded or shared with anyone other than the person completing the questionnaire.

How was the Questionnaire Developed?

The BrainGuide memory questionnaires were created with input from medical experts and are adapted from commonly applied and validated tools in the healthcare community. Additionally, the design and development of BrainGuide was informed by market research that included real-time qualitative and quantitative feedback from users.

The self-assessment is based on the MIS/MIS-T (which is used under license from Albert Einstein College of Medicine) and the caregiver assessment is based on the AD8 (which is used under license from Washington University in Saint Louis). These assessments were adapted for use with both a voice and web bot. They are not intended to diagnose or make treatment recommendations.
