What is an advocate?
Advocates raise awareness about Alzheimer's and urge the government to make real policy change in support of research funding and care.
As an advocate you will:
- Generate action from our elected officials
- Stay informed of the latest policy and legislative issues
- Elevate Alzheimer's from a disease to a cause
On July 30, 2014, the Massachusetts legislature passed the following two bills:
Acute Care Act: The goals of this measure is to develop guidelines that will improve health care delivery for Alzheimer's patients in acute care settings through an advisory commiteee comprised of a wide spectrum of stakeholders in dementia care.
Uniform Adult Guardianship: The measure will reduce stress for families careing for loved ones with Alzheimer's by making it simpler to address legal issues across state lines.
