Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's
The Alzheimer’s Association proudly supports as one of our top federal priorities, the Health Outcomes, Planning, and Education (HOPE) for Alzheimer’s Act. The bill number in the Senate is S. 738 and bill number in the House of Representatives is H.R. 1386.
Passage of this bipartisan legislation would improve care and outcomes for people with Alzheimer’s disease by improving diagnosis, care planning, and medical record documentation. It will increase access to information, care and support for newly diagnosed individuals and their families -- providing essential support for those facing this devastating, debilitating disease. To learn more about the HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act visit www.alz.org/hopeact.
Please ask your elected officials to cosponsor this important legislation. Below is a draft letter to help you get started -- this message will be made much more powerful if you customize it with your personal story describing the critical importance of a formal diagnosis, care planning and supports for families facing Alzheimer’s.
