Research on what people know about the differences between healthy and pathological aging has produced inconsistent and inconclusive results, with research on the perceptions of competence of healthy older adults and older adults with AD even scarcer. Such efforts to better understand people's perceptions and knowledge of healthy aging and AD will shed light on a rather unfamiliar domain, and have the potential to increase help seeking behavior.
