What is an advocate?

Alzheimer's advocates play an important role in improving the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by working to improve dementia care and services; improve access to community-based care; improve quality care in residential settings; and expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.

As an advocate, you will:

  • Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues.
  • Stay on top of policy and legislative issues through alerts and updates.
  • Make calls or write to legislators to forward public policy priorities to improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer's Advocacy Day

We are excited to invite you to raise your voice at this year's MICHIGAN ALZHEIMER'S ADVOCACY DAYon Tuesday, May 5, 2015 from 9:00am - 3:30pm. 

Alzheimer's Disease affects 170,000 Michiganders. It is the 6th leading cause of death and the only disease in the top ten causes of death that currently has no cure, no treatment, and not even a way to slow its progression.

At the Michigan Alzheimer's Advocacy Day you will be empowered to share your story with your state Representative and Senator and ask for their support for state policies which will assist families faced with this devastating disease. Alzheimer's Advocacy Day will be held in the Speaker's Library on the second floor of the State Capitol building in Lansing, Michigan.  Along with meeting with your state legislators you'll learn more about the disease and how you can be an effective voice in the fight against Alzheimer's.
