Alzheimer's Association Greater East Ohio Area Chapter will hold a town
hall to discuss the many difficulties and challenges seen by those
living with Alzheimer's disease and their families. Participants will be
able to share with their legislators the challenges you face personally
in dealing with Alzheimer's disease. Specifically we would like to get
your input on the four issues that are addressed in the National
- Tell your legislator how important it would be to have available
treatments that cured, prevented or even simply slowed this disease - as
you know, something we do not have today.
ABOUT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE - Explain how the lives of those affected by
Alzheimer's and other dementias would improve if there was a wider
understanding of and sensitivity to this disease.
SYSTEM - Share about your experiences with the current health care
system and what difference it would make if physicians and other health
care providers were better trained to care for those with Alzheimer's and
CAREGIVER SUPPORT NEEDS - Share on the importance of providing better support for Alzheimer's caregivers.
