The AHEAD Registry is not for people who have already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

This registry is for people who do not have, but may be at risk of developing, Alzheimer’s disease, so we are unable to include those who already have an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis; however, close family members of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease may be able to take part in the study and contribute to our understanding of the early stages of the disease.
