The Obama administration’s plan to fight Alzheimer’s was signed into law back in 2011. Specific actions of the law include starting clinical trials to study the disease, developing training to treat the disease and educating the public on where to get the services they need.
The plan that had originally set five goals back in 2011:
• Prevent and Effectively Treat Alzheimer’s disease by 2025
• Enhance Care Quality and Efficiency
• Expand Support for people with the Disease and Their Families
• Enhance Public Awareness and Engagement
• Improve Data to Track Progress
The administration has also announced the continuation of the National Family Caregiver Support Program. This valuable program offers some respite services which is essential in helping to keep caregivers up to the difficult task.
