So much have been heard about Alzheimer’s disease and the burden it has on those living with the disease, as well as their families. Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic, progressive and neurodegenerative type of dementia that has serious effects on daily life. (Alzheimer’s Association, n.d.). Although aging is a risk factor, however, it is not a normal aspect of aging.  The effects of Alzheimer’s disease can be challenging for primary caregivers. Being the primary caregiver for my 85 year old father who before his death, suffered Alzheimer’s disease was overwhelming.

On March 12, 2019, Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota introduced S.740, “Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Act”. The bill if passed, will provide grants to train and support caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementias. The bill was read twice, and has been referred to the committee on health, education, labor and pensions (congress.gov, 2019). 

I strongly believe there is enough evidence in support of this bill. According to Brodaty and Donkin (2009), primary caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s disease are referred to as the “invisible second patients”. The negative impacts of being a caregiver include psychological morbidity, social isolation, physical ill-health, and financial hardship.  Many families of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease are ignorant of the disease’s prognosis .The slow but steady impending changes in memory and function it causes require extensive amounts of care, time and energy from the caregiver. This therefore, is a reason why this bill is important. The grant from the bill will be used to train, support and perhaps augment for the financial burden the family may experience. 

For those whose loved one is living with Alzheimer’s, disease, Streater (2016) advised that it is of great importance that you take specific actions early. This action includes becoming as educated and informed as possible about the disease so you always will know what to expect.
