You can disseminate flyers within healthcare offices, senior centers, and through events such as health fairs, festivals, and other relevant affairs.

Healthcare provider guide

The provider guide is intended to support healthcare providers and administrators to inform and guide their conversations with American Indian and Alaska Native patients about the connections between brain health, including risk factors, protective health behaviors, and key messages. 

Four radio PSAs featuring popular former host of Native American Calling, Harlan McKasato, are available for use on state and regional radio networks.

Savvy Caregiver in Indian Country Training Materials

This training is designed for trainers working with American Indian and Alaska Native caregivers who care for an elder with memory loss and thinking problems (dementia). One of the main themes of the Savvy Caregiver in Indian Country Trainer’s Manual is to teach caregivers to know the stage of dementia corresponding to their loved one’s functioning. Knowing how to determine the stage allows the caregiver to use activates and tasks that fit the elder’s changing abilities.
