Alzheimer’s is an urgent public health crisis impacting our nation’s health care infrastructure. Investing in a nationwide public health response to this crisis will improve quality of life for those living with the disease and their caregivers, and reduce associated costs for individuals and the government. The Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 2076/H.R. 4256) would combat this crisis and create an Alzheimer’s public health infrastructure to address Alzheimer’s.
The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (S. 693/H.R. 1676) would increase palliative care and hospice training for health care professionals, launch a national campaign to inform patients and families about the benefits of palliative care, and enhance research on improving the delivery of palliative care.
