The Alzheimer's Disease Risk Index (ADRI) is The Center for Brain Health’s objective measure of how well clients are progressing with their brain health plan.

The Center for Brain Health will be using the Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Index (ADRI) screening tool as its objective measure of how well clients are progressing with their brain health plan.  The ADRI is an evidence-based, validated tool aimed at assessing individual exposure to risk factors known to be associated with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in later life. 

The ADRI is based on 8 years of research and development involving thousands of people.  It has been used in research projects that aim to evaluate methods of reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease including an online dementia risk reduction trial.  Our Center will become the first to use the screening tool outside a research environment.  The Australian National University developed the ADRI and validated it on the U.S Rush Memory and Aging Study, the Kungsholmen project and the U.S Cardiovascular Health Study.
