A National Response to Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia

The bipartisan NAPA Reauthorization Act (S. 4203 / H.R. 7775) and the Alzheimer’s Accountability and Investment Act (S. 4202 / H.R. 7773) would build on the progress made over the last decade by continuing to promote rapid research and improve the delivery of clinical care and services for people living with Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.

A Path to Better Dementia Care

The bipartisan Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) would ask the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test a different payment structure for dementia care management. This important bill has the potential to streamline today’s complicated health care maze for people living with dementia and their caregivers.

Equity in Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials

The bipartisan Equity in Neuroscience and Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials (ENACT) Act (S. 1548 / H.R. 3085) would increase the participation of underrepresented populations in Alzheimer’s and other dementia clinical trials by expanding education and outreach to these populations, encouraging the diversity of clinical trial staff, and reducing participation burden, among other priorities.

Our Nation’s Commitment to Alzheimer’s Research and Public Health Response

Congress must continue to invest in Alzheimer’s and dementia research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and fund the Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (P.L. 115-406) to strengthen the public health infrastructure across the country by implementing effective Alzheimer’s intervention focused on public health issues such as increasing early detection and diagnosis, reducing risk, and preventing avoidable hospitalizations.

Supporting Alzheimer’s Caregivers

An estimated 11 million Americans are providing unpaid care to someone living with dementia, and they need our support. While providing this assistance can be rewarding it's also quite challenging for the caregiver to sustain. The bipartisan Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Act (S. 56 / H.R.1474) would provide much needed relief for our nation’s dementia caregivers.
