According to the 2021 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures, an annual report released by the Alzheimer's Association, 32% of Asian-Americans report discrimination when seeking healthcare as a barrier to Alzheimer’s and dementia care and 47% of caregivers report discrimination when seeking healthcare for their loved ones with dementia.

Knowledge and stigma about Alzheimer’s disease varies widely across communities of color with 46% of Asian-Americans expressing concern about developing Alzheimer’s.
