Alzheimer’s is one of the most uniquely cruel conditions we have ever seen, which is why I believe we must do more to support the millions of families and caregivers who do their best to cope with this disease.

The good news is that - with my support - the House of Representatives recently passed a bill to help protect those in our community living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. This legislation - the Promoting Alzheimer’s Awareness to Prevent Elder Abuse Act - will better equip law enforcement, judges and emergency personnel to investigate and respond to instances of elder abuse.

There’s still work to be done to find a cure for this terrible disease, but I’m hopeful that this bill will help protect the most vulnerable in our community and give their families much-deserved peace of mind.
