The Diversity Toolbox was developed to include a variety of resources for people with dementia, their families and caregivers and health and social service professionals.


Each section of the Toolbox includes some of the following features:

  • Education Materials
    This section includes print products and videos on Alzheimer’s disease, dementia care and other dementia-related topics. The videos are listed under a separate heading than the print products.

  • Assessment Tools
    This section includes common dementia-related clinical assessment tools that have been translated or adapted for use with individuals in a particular ethnic group.

  • Outreach Tips
    This section is designed for professionals who work with individuals in diverse ethnic and cultural communities. The content includes recommendations for culturally sensitive care, demographic information, overviews of help-seeking behaviors and caregiving practices and sample outreach programs.

  • Glossary of Terms
    A translated glossary of terms defines frequently used concepts in Alzheimer-related treatment, research and care.

  • Bibliography
    Each bibliography is a reviewed collection of articles, books, and other resources about Alzheimer’s disease and issues relevant to dementia treatment and care among individuals in ethnic and cultural minority groups.
