New Poll: Americans Woefully Unprepared for Alzheimer’s and Caregiving

Results from a Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement and Caring Across Generations poll released today reveal that most Americans are not aware of the higher prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease among women (2 out of 3 cases), are not discussing brain health with their doctors, and not prepared for the emotional or financial demands of caregiving, either for themselves or for older family members. This is even though two in three Americans are caregiving Americans, and the average caregiver puts in 35.9 hours a week – amounting to almost a full-time job. Americans across gender, race and party lines are deeply motivated by Alzheimer’s and caregiving needs as a political issue, and overwhelmingly indicated that they would support candidates who prioritize quality care for older adults and support for caregivers (85%); funding for Alzheimer’s and dementia research (74%); access to quality childcare (68%); and universal paid family leave (67%).
