What is an advocate?

Alzheimer 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.

Read one advocate's story...

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.

Capitol Hill - Alzheimer’s advocates from across the country gather at the Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum to learn about key policy priorities and meet with Members of Congress to discuss Alzheimer’s issues.
