Strong public health leadership is essential to engage community partners in driving structural changes that support caregiving for all people living with dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association and CDC partnered to produce the first caregiving action brief that provides an overview of the challenges of caregiving for people living with dementia and provides state, local, and tribal public health leaders with a framework and resources for action. Access the action brief here.
Healthy behaviors can reduce risk for memory loss and promote brain health, and targeted messaging can help. CDC partnered with the The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors to produce 3 rack cards and 1 infographic for use on websites, in doctors’ offices, and other venues. Messages highlight the importance of maintaining healthy blood sugar, healthy blood pressure, and a healthy diet. Rack cards and the infographic are available here.
