Why Advocate?

Why become an Alzheimer’s Advocate? California is home to more than 588,000 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and another 1.1 million family members who provide daily care.  As staggering as these statistics are, they pale in comparison to the explosive growth of Alzheimer’s that will occur over the next 20 years as people live longer with chronic conditions once fatal.  One in six California baby boomers aged 55 and over will develop Alzheimer’s by 2030.  The state’s rich ethnic diversity presents unique challenges as Asians and Latinos face higher incidences of Alzheimer’s disease.  Visit www.alz.org/CAdata to learn about how Alzheimer’s is affecting Californians.

The Alzheimer’s Association is vigorously advocating with Legislators and the Governor on behalf of people living with Alzheimer’s and their families.  But we need your involvement and your voice to be successful.
