Build a Better Path to Dementia Care


Comprehensive dementia care has been shown to reduce costs while providing better quality care. Unfortunately, dementia care management programs have not developed within the current Medicare fee-for-service system. The bipartisan Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer's Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) would ask the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test a different payment structure for dementia care management

Support our Nation's Dementia 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.

Join the Alzheimer's Congressional Task Force


Since its founding in 1999, the bipartisan Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease has worked to advance research and public awareness of Alzheimer’s and all dementia by bringing the disease to the forefront of the congressional agenda. The Task Force has been instrumental in helping advance policies to improve the lives of all those impacted by Alzheimer’s. Join us in encouraging all members to join this important task force.
