Advocacy for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias
Unfortunately, there are no cures available for dementia. But there are treatments available to alleviate and manage the symptoms of dementia, such as behavioral changes and anxiety. Accordingly, we must have a healthcare system that provides adequate care for people living with dementia.
Accelerate Cures/Treatments for All Dementias (ACT-AD) is a coalition of more than 50 national non-profit health professional, patient, business, health provider and consumer organizations seeking to accelerate development of potential cures and treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and all dementias.
