Welcome Letter: How BrainGuide Helps Combat Alzheimer’s Disease

Dear Partner,

BrainGuide is free and easy to access – in English and Spanish – online or over the phone. It provides memory questionnaires that you can take on behalf of yourself or someone you care about. Once the questionnaire is complete, BrainGuide offers a set of tailored resources based on the answers you provided.

We invite you to share information about BrainGuide with the communities you serve, using the materials provided in this Awareness Toolkit. This toolkit includes both digital and creative files, as well as instructions for printing collateral for your own use.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Key Facts

With 60% of Alzheimer’s cases in patients over 65 years old going unrecognized, we know that there are millions of people nationwide worried about brain health, and we want to reach as many of them as possible.

  • Approximately 6.2 million people in the U.S. are living with Alzheimer’s disease
  • More than 1 in 9 people age 65 and older in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s disease
  • According to data from Chicago Health and Aging Project [CHAP] study, there is a greater risk of Alzheimer’s disease among Black and Latino communities. 18.6% of Blacks and 14% of Hispanics age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease compared with 10% of White older adults.

How Does Raising Alzheimer’s Awareness Help?

Driving awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and resources is the first step in combating this health crisis. As the general public becomes more aware of the signs and symptoms, earlier detection will become more likely.

BrainGuide provides resources your community can use to determine the next best step in managing their or a loved one's brain health or memory concerns. By leveraging this awareness toolkit, you can help be a part of the solution.
