The Asian-American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Dementia Action Guide titled “Connecting with AAPIs About Dementia” is for community-based organizations working to educate and empower Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities about dementia.

The purpose of the guide is to share information on:

  • Barriers to dementia detection, treatment, and support for the AAPI community,
  • Recent findings from a research study to test culturally appropriate messages to improve early identification of dementia by engaging adult children and their families, and
  • Recommendations and resources for better reaching the AAPI community.
