The HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act
Become an advocate for Alzheimer’s patients and their Caregivers
You can help in getting legislation passed in the U.S. Congress that helps Alzheimer’s Patients and their Caregivers get the support services, early diagnosis, education, and training that they so desperately need to deal with this hideous disease.
Right now there is a proposed bill before the U.S. Congress called the HOPE Act. Sponsored by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, and is focused on getting much needed funding through Medicare to make Alzheimer’s a top priority in our country
Sen. Stabenow has introduced bipartisan legislation, the Health Outcomes, Planning and Education (HOPE) for Alzheimer’s Act (S.857), to combat Alzheimer’s disease and support those suffering or caring for a family member with this devastating illness.
The legislation will provide Alzheimer’s patients and their families with much-needed information about the disease and possible treatment options, as well as how to care for their loved one and plan for the future.
The bill does this by creating a new care management, planning session for newly diagnosed Alzheimer’s patients under Medicare. The bill is sponsored by Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Edward Markey (D-MA), and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV). The legislation has been endorsed by both the Alzheimer’s Research Association and the Alzheimer’s Association.
What we are asking of you and of all of our visitors to our organization is that you write to your U.S. Congress representatives and your U.S. Senators and tell them that you support this bill and you would like them to support the bill as well.
