America has a new president, and while he certainly faces a number of challenges in his first days in office, the Alzheimer’s Association is working to make sure that the important issue of Alzheimer’s Disease is not overlooked.

The proclamation outlines key elements the Alzheimer’s Association feels should be in the President’s plan to address the disease, including:
- An immediate increase in federally-funded medical research;
- Access to affordable health coverage for people living with Alzheimer’s under age 65;
- A Medicare program that better meets the special needs of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s and other serious medical conditions; and
- Caregiver support services and long- term care coverage for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
