As the number of older adults living in the United States grows, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia grows along with it. To address this growing need, n4a, in partnership with UsAgainstAlzheimer's (UsA2), has launched the BrainGuide Helpline to support users of UsA2's new BrainGuide.

BrainGuide is a first-of-its-kind platform that empowers older adults, care partners and others with knowledge and resources to take next steps in managing brain health for themselves or a loved one. 
 
Available in both English and Spanish, BrainGuide offers free resources based on the answers users provide in an automated, confidential, self-administered memory questionnaire. The BrainGuide memory questionnaire does not provide a diagnosis but can help guide individuals toward additional information and resources.
 
BrainGuide users seeking additional support can also connect with BrainGuide Information Specialists via the n4a-administered BrainGuide Helpline for further assistance connecting with local and national resources. The BrainGuide questionnaire, resources and helpline can be accessed at mybrainguide.org or by calling 855-BRAIN-411.
 
Listen or watch the recording of our May 11 webinar to learn more about BrainGuide, how it works and why the platform is so important. To help organizations promote BrainGuide and the n4a BrainGuide Helpline in your communities, UsA2 has created an advocacy toolkit that contains sample content that can be used in your newsletter or on your website and social media channels.
