Genetics and family history, along with age, play a large part in a person’s individual risk for developing Alzheimer’s dementia.
Public health can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's across the lifespan by promoting being physically active, quitting smoking, and being heart-healthy.
Researchers believe there is not a single cause of Alzheimer's disease. It likely develops from multiple factors, such as genetics, lifestyle and environment.
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms eventually grow severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Public health can use data and assessment to drive action, identify gaps and meet the needs of people living with dementia and caregivers.
