It's a new day in the fight against Alzheimer's. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval of aducanumab (Aduhelm) — the first drug to slow the progression of Alzheimer's — is the beginning of a completely new future for Alzheimer's treatments. The Alzheimer's Association® expects this will be the first of a number of treatments to come. This is an important milestone in the treatment of Alzheimer's, and a victory for people living with Alzheimer's and their families. We are grateful for your passion to fuel Association efforts to advance groundbreaking research. Thank you for sharing our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

You may be able to influence some Alzheimer's risk factors
Researchers have identified factors that increase the risk of Alzheimer's. The most important risk factors — age, family history and heredity — can't be changed, but emerging evidence suggests we may be able to influence other factors. Learn more.

Caregivers need to pay attention to their physical and emotional health
As a caregiver for a person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia, you may find yourself neglecting to take good care of yourself. The best thing you can do for the person you're caring for is to stay physically and emotionally strong. Learn more.

People living with Alzheimer's may feel anxious or agitated
Anxiety and agitation in someone living with Alzheimer's or another dementia may be caused by a different medical condition or other circumstances that affect their ability to think. We have tips to help prevent or reduce agitation. Learn more.

Mediterranean diet may help lower dementia risk
The Mediterranean diet, rich in vegetables, fruits, olive oil and fish, may help protect the brain from plaque buildup and shrinkage, a new study suggests. Researchers note that the results contribute to the body of evidence that links healthy eating habits with brain health and cognitive performance in old age. Heather Snyder, Ph.D., Alzheimer's Association vice president of Medical and Scientific Relations, says, "What we know is what's good for your heart is good for your brain, so eat a balanced diet but also get active, get moving and stay engaged."
