One minute to end Alzheimer's
Alzheimer's kills. It steals your intellect, your ability to communicate, your independence, and ultimately, your dignity. It's a cruel, heartbreaking disease that affects one in three families. Researchers need additional funding for Alzheimer's and institutional reforms that could help them stop this disease and families need resources and policies that will allow them to provide the care their loved ones deserve.
Our elected officials want to do the right thing – they want to stop Alzheimer’s disease, just like you do. But without public pressure, they won't know their constituents believe it should be a national priority. We need your voice and your commitment:
Join the Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin and sign the petition to end Alzheimer's.
We need your voice!
The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin is working hard to protect people with Alzheimer’s and their families through our grass roots Advocacy Network. Sign up today and we will alert you when important public policy issues arise in Wisconsin or Washington, D.C.
Recently we have:
- Prevented the proposed elimination of the Alzheimer’s Family Caregiver Support Program (AFCSP) in the state budget.
- Added several million dollars to the state budget for Alzheimer’s research, laying the groundwork for the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (W-ADRC) in Madison.
- Worked to increase the number of training hours for Certified Nursing Assistants from 75 to 120.
Please consider adding your voice to the Network — your letters and phone calls really do make a difference!
