Dementia Resources

Although Alzheimer's Disease represents 60-80% of dementia diagnoses, there are several other forms of dementia, including Vascular, Lewy Body, and forms that occur in association with conditions such as Parkinson's and Huntington's Disease.

The Georgia Alzheimer’s & Related Dementias (GARD) Outreach & Partnerships workgroup developed a flyer to promote brain health and the early detection of dementia. This resource can be used by faith communities, senior centers, or other groups. You can view that flyer by clicking here. If you have questions about this flyer or want to provide feedback on how you plan to use this flyer, please contact the GARD Coordinator Victoria Helmly victoria.helmly@dhs.ga.gov
