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.

Missouri Alzheimer's State Plan Task Force

The Missouri Alzheimer’s State Plan Task Force was commissioned to address the Alzheimer’s crisis in our state. The task force convened community forums to hear the concerns of Missouri citizens across the state, including individuals living with the disease, family caregivers, and key stakeholders. In November 2010, the Task Force published a State Plan for combating Alzheimer’s in Missouri that addressed the above concerns raised at the forums.
