Washington State Advocacy Day 

Thank you everyone who helped make 2017 Advocacy Day a success. Our advocates visited the offices of every state legislator, helping us move closer to proper Alzheimer's care in Washington state.

To catch up on the day, review our Advocates Guide and the Washington State Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias. If you live in Idaho, check out information on Idaho Advocacy Day below. To make an impact nationally, attend the Advocacy Forum in Washington D.C. March 27-29.

Contact your elected officials and thank them for standing up for those living with Alzheimer's disease.

What is an advocate?

Alzheimer advocates play an important role in improving the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by working to improve dementia care and services; improve access to community-based care; improve quality care in residential settings; and expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.

As an advocate, you will:

  • Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues.
  • Stay on top of policy and legislative issues through alerts and updates.
  • Make calls or write to legislators to forward public policy priorities to improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s.
