Alzheimer’s disease is a disease that can affect cognition, perception and behavior and is currently untreatable. It was discovered in the early 20th century and while significant scientific advancements have occurred, there is ambiguity that remains to be researched and understood. Latinos are the largest ethnic minority in the United States and while data still needs to be uncovered, possible risk factors for developing Alzheimer’s include heart issues, poverty and obesity, age and education level, to name a few. Poverty is linked to obesity, diabetes and a low education level, which in turn have been found to have an impact on Alzheimer’s and all factors impact cardiovascular and vascular health. Due to the collectivistic culture that is deeply rooted in Latinos, there is a strong sense of family that is upheld when caring for relatives who are afflicted and may be hesitant to receive the care that is needed. Other barriers include financial stability, linguistic and cultural barriers, underutilizing resources and health literacy. There are still research gaps that are yet to be filled like brain health and longitudinal studies for Latinos, but current treatments like diet and culturally competent professionals can help with the prognosis. Alzheimer’s is a complex disease, but with the numerous efforts made thus far, such as creating the LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s Network, it will soon be able to be understood and hopefully eradicated.
