Foundation of America

Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Go Teal for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month!

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, a time to heighten awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and show support for the more than 6.2 million Americans living with it. There are a number of quick and easy ways you can help raise awareness, show support, and fight Alzheimer’s disease!

Why Teal?

Teal is the Alzheimer’s Awareness color of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). AFA uses teal because it has been shown in color psychology studies to be a calming color. This is helpful when designing and decorating spaces and events to be welcoming and comforting to those living with Alzheimer’s. So, next time you see someone dressed in teal, remember the more than 6 million people living with Alzheimer’s and the help they need.

Light the World in Teal

November 3, 2022

More than 800 structures around the world will “go teal” this year to raise awareness and show support for the millions of people affected by Alzheimer’s.

If you have access to an office building, campus, monument, or even your house, you can be a part of “lighting the world in teal”! You can still wear teal and update your social media cover photo to help raise awareness!

Get a Free Virtual Memory Screening

Memory screenings are an important part of a good health and wellness routine. Through its National Memory Screening Program, AFA allows individuals to receive free, one-on-one, confidential memory screenings from a qualified professional in a virtual format using their computer, smart phone or tablet.

We are here to help. Whenever. Wherever.

If Alzheimer’s is in your life, help is within your reach.  AFA’s National Toll-Free Helpline (866-232-8484) is open seven days a week and staffed entirely by licensed social workers specifically trained in dementia care.
