The National Institute on Aging (NIA) recently announced a new resource that will help teach and assist those whose lives are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Alzheimers.gov is a website that serves as the federal government portal for dementia information and resources.
To create Alzheimers.gov, the NIA worked with individuals living with dementia, families, activists, experts, and others to encourage an interactive, user-friendly, and inspiring website.
Alzheimers.gov is for you whether you are living with dementia, a family member or acquaintance, a health care provider, a researcher, or an advocate. Visit the website to learn more about:
- Information about the causes, signs, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and associated dementias.
- Tips and resources for caregivers and people living with dementia
- Updates on the federal government’s efforts to combat Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
- Clinical trials and studies you can join to help advance ways to treat and prevent dementia
- Resources for healthcare professionals, community-based and public-health staff, and researchers.
