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.
The chapter recently produced a video and included ways our constituents can be active participants. View this short video clip to learn more (the clip will open in a new window).
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.
The Alzheimer's Association - North Central Texas Chapter currently is
working with other Texas chapters to collaborate on state
issues relevant to our constituent concerns. As the 2015 legislative
session is in progress, it is crucial that Texas' momentum in
Alzheimer's research is sustained and advanced. Learn about the Texas Alzheimer's Research Consortium
, the Texas State Plan on Alzheimer's Disease
and how we can move the cause forward.
Now is the time to join us and speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer's disease and their families, and help persuade Congress to address those needs through legislative action. You, too, can become an Advocate for Alzheimer's.
