Alzheimer’s advocate thanks Tulsi Gabbard
The COVID-19 pandemic has focused attention on the acute needs of vulnerable seniors, including the estimated 5.8 million Americans age 65 and older living with Alzheimer’s and all dementia in 2020. I’m a volunteer advocate for the Alzheimer’s Association where help is available in 200 languages, 24/7, at (800) 272-3900 or alz.org.
In these uncertain times, we need leaders like Tulsi Gabbard, whose commitment to the needs of her constituents is foremost in federal budget and policy actions. As a daughter of a man who lived and struggled with dementia, I want to thank Rep. Gabbard for prioritizing important Alzheimer’s initiatives in recent years.
While Hawaii and the nation work together to get past this crisis, I look forward to continued leadership from Congresswoman Gabbard on behalf of our community and the vulnerable seniors at greatest risk of COVID-19.
