Goal #3: Expand Supports for people with Alzheimer’s & their families

The National Alzheimer’s plan includes provisions that provide support for family caregivers. As part of the plan the Administration on Aging will work with state governments to develop dementia-capable long-term services and supports for caregivers. The Plan also calls for a better system of assessing caregiver needs, as well as improved methods of connecting caregivers to services and evidence-based interventions. Lastly, the President’s fiscal year 2013 budget request to Congress includes an additional $10.5 million to support Alzheimer’s caregivers.
