Supporting America’s Alzheimer’s Caregivers
Although often rewarding, the intense responsibilities of providing care for someone living with dementia often take a toll on the caregiver. Providing that care can be an emotionally, physically and financially draining role. Yet as a nation, we haven’t done enough to support the 11 million Americans providing this unpaid care.
Thankfully, the bipartisan Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Act (H.R. 1474 / S. 56) can provide much-needed relief for our nation’s caregivers. If signed into law, it would provide grants to expand training and support services for unpaid caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. These grants would cover valuable training and services including caregiver support groups, group education and skills-training sessions.
AIM advocates have been building bipartisan support in Congress for this important bill. Raise your voice on behalf of Alzheimer’s caregivers and take action today!
