The National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health, conducts and supports scientific research to help more people live healthy, active lives as they grow older. NIA offers the following resources to support older adults, their families, and caregivers:

  1. Information on maintaining health and function as you age. You can read NIA’s health information online or order free print publications for yourself, your loved ones, or your organization. Many health information pages and publications are also available in Spanish.
  2. Health information and research news about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. As the primary federal agency for research on these diseases, NIA oversees the website The website provides information in both English and Spanish for people living with these devastating diseases—and for their families and caregivers.
  3. Clinical trial information and resources for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, their caregivers, and healthy individuals. NIA offers in-depth information on participating in clinical trials and can help you find one convenient to you.

You can contact NIA’s information resource centers by phone or email to learn about healthy aging, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, services in your community, and clinical trials. You can also explore NIA’s website for timely information such as federal resources to support older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When you sign up for NIA’s emails, we can receive weekly tips on healthy aging and caregiving—and updates about clinical trials, scientific research, and research funding opportunities. You can also follow NIA on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

    Unfortunately, when people do not lose their loved ones, they realize their value. Hold your loved ones’ hand tighter and do not let go. Love is universal.
