EBC-endorsed “Alzheimer’s Policy toolkit for Members of the European Parliament” released
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) – the most common cause of dementia – is one of the most significant medical and societal challenges of our time. It does not discriminate and affects everyone, across all generations – from the people who develop the condition, to the families that care for them and the taxpayers who fund health services.
By providing facts and figures, polling findings and by highlighting what you can do on EU and national level to aid people with AD today across the EU, this toolkit is designed to help you promote change by driving the policy debate to benefit people with AD, their families, caregivers and society as a whole. In particular, you will find suggested steps that you can take to refresh the debate on EU level and, crucially, shape policy on national level – where change has so far been less forthcoming – to improve AD/dementia services and empower people with AD/dementia to live better lives.
