This website offers information about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) and resources that can help. Learn the warning signs and start a conversation with your loved one if you start to notice changes that may be related to dementia. The earlier you begin the conversation, the better you can prepare and respond to the changes that may come.

Alzheimer's disease is a major public health issue in Texas. An estimated 6.9 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer's in 2024. In 2020, approximately 459,300 Texans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s. Without a cure or a way to slow or prevent it, the number of Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is projected to reach 12.7 million people by 2050.
