Advocate

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.

Past advocacy victories include:

  • Preventing the proposed elimination of the Alzheimer’s Family Caregiver Support Program (AFCSP) in the state budget.
  • Adding 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.
  • Working to increase the number of training hours for Certified Nursing Assistants from 75 to 120.
