Alzheimer's disease is a major public health issue in Texas. An estimated 6.2 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer's disease in 2021.1 Approximately 400,000 of them are Texans.1 Without a cure or a way to prevent it, the number of Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is projected to reach 12.7 million people by 2050.1

We work to increase awareness of Alzheimer's disease and help people living with the disease and their friends, family, and caregivers. This website offers information and resources that can assist at every step of the journey with Alzheimer's disease. An important first step is to learn the warning signs of Alzheimer's disease and start a conversation if a loved one shows signs of dementia. The earlier you begin talking, the better you can prepare and respond to the changes that may come.
