ALZHEIMER'S AND DEMENTIA CARE


The Alzheimer's Impact Movement is leading the way to advance policies to improve access to quality health care services for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease. The health care system, as it exists today, all too often fails both those living with dementia and their caregivers. Because of AIM's efforts with the Alzheimer's Association, addressing the shortcomings through better policies is now front and center on Capitol Hill and in federal agencies.

Our Call to Congress

Comprehensive dementia care has been shown to provide better quality care and reduce costs. We’ve worked with bipartisan Congressional champions to introduce the Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer's Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) to expand access to collaborative dementia care management.

To ensure the law is fully implemented AIM is asking Congress to fully fund the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act at $20 million for Fiscal Year 2021.Learn more.
