The statistics are sobering: An estimated 55 million people around the world are living with dementia. Every 65 seconds, a new brain develops Alzheimer’s disease—and two out of three of them belong to women. A staggering 11.2 million Americans provide unpaid care to someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia—and two thirds of them are women.

Yet while these numbers are hard to fathom, nothing compares to hearing that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with the disease. Navigating what that means for both patients and their loved ones can feel impossible, and a one-stop hub for support has been elusive—until now.

The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM) has done the hard work of creating guides that everyone needs to both navigate the disease, look for early signs of declining brain function, and even take proactive steps to keep your brain healthy. They were years in the making and have proven to be game-changers when it comes to helping families face this terrifying, life-altering disease.

You can download the guides here. We feel confident they will move you—and move humanity forward.
