Connecting w/ Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders about Dementia: An Action Guide for Service Providers

This action brief is for community-based organizations working to educate and empower Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities about dementia. The purpose of the brief is to share information on:

  • Why dementia is such an important issue for the AAPI community,
  • 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

A version of this guide for policymakers can be found here.
