2 Overview Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias in the US
The National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) National Plan Progress NAPA WEBSITE:

3 Alzheimer’s Disease/Related Dementias in the U.S.
Estimated 5 million people in the U.S. with AD/RD The number of people in the U.S. over age 85 is growing; thus, experts expect a substantial increase in the number of people with AD/RD. Estimated annual costs to health and long-term care systems for caring for people with AD/RD: $109 billion, most of which is LTC Estimated costs of care by family and friends Foregone wages: $50 billion Paying for this care in the private market would cost over $106 billion Source: Hurd et al. N Engl J Med 2013;368: NAPA WEBSITE:

4 Major Challenges Presented by Alzheimer’s Disease
Currently there is no way to prevent, treat or cure AD/RD. Better quality of care measures and staff training are needed. Family members and other caregivers need support. Stigmas and misconceptions are widespread. Public and private progress should be coordinated and tracked. NAPA WEBSITE:

5 Investments and Resources in AD/RD Before the NAPA: Highlights
$502 million on research in 2010 Physiology; diagnosis; translational research & clinical interventions; epidemiology; care, support & health economics; research resources Vast majority ($457 million) funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical care Detection and diagnosis; Treatment and care coordination Training Long-Term Care Nursing home entitlement for people who meet need criteria Smaller programs to support national network of aging services providers Small programs include the National Family Caregiver Support Program funded by AoA, which provides services such as respite to caregivers of older adults with disabilities, including people with Alzheimer’s disease Another AoA program is the Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program, which is only $3 million. This program helps states and communities make infrastructure changes so that the existing LTSS system can be more responsive to the needs of people with AD AoA also funds a 24/7 call line that caregivers can use to get information and for help in emergencies NAPA WEBSITE:

6 Key Features of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA)
Signed January 4, 2011, requires the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to establish the National Alzheimer’s Project to: Create and maintain an integrated national plan to overcome Alzheimer’s Coordinate research and services across all federal agencies Accelerate the development of treatments that would prevent, halt, or reverse the disease Improve early diagnosis and coordination of care and treatment of the disease Improve outcomes for ethnic and racial minority populations at higher risk Coordinate with international bodies to fight Alzheimer’s globally. Create an Advisory Council to review and comment on the national plan and its implementation NAPA WEBSITE:

13 Progress to Date Developed recommendations on how best to advance research: Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit 2012: Path to Treatment and Prevention Created a document with research milestones to reach 2025 goal: Provided resources to train >10,000 health care providers on topics from dementia diagnosis to effective behavior management Launched to increase public awareness and connect people with a diagnosis and their caregivers with important resources Panel on advanced dementia Specific Populations Task Force to identify the unique challenges faced by groups unequally burdened by Alzheimer’s disease. Report released July 24 NIH meeting on AD for people with Down syndrome (April 2013) NIH research summit on other dementias (May 2013) International work with the G7 and WHO A few details on what we have accomplished since the 2012 release: National Institutes of Health brought together international experts for the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit 2012: Path to Treatment and Prevention, which developed recommendations on how best to advance research. The Health Resources and Services Administration issued grants that helped provide training to more than 10,000 health care providers on topics from dementia diagnosis to effective behavior management for people with dementia and their caregivers. HHS launched to increase public awareness and connect people with a diagnosis and their caregivers with important resources. The site had more than 200,000 visits in the first ten months. HHS convened a Specific Populations Task Force that worked with outside groups to identify the unique challenges faced by groups unequally burdened by Alzheimer’s disease. This includes people with younger onset AD, racial and ethnic minority groups, and people with Down Syndrome. The report was released in July 2013 and will inform the 2014 Update. NIH held a meeting on research about AD for people with Down syndrome in April 2013 NIH research summit on other dementias in May 2013 NAPA WEBSITE:
