Milken Institute launches new alliance to enhance dementia care

The Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging has reportedly introduced the Alliance to Increase Dementia Treatment. The coalition will aim to change and strengthen the diverse health and long-term care services to help people dealing with dementia.

Sources cite that the partnership will pull together leaders from health systems, industry, research, advocacy, philanthropy, and government, drawing on the convening expertise and vast network of the Milken Institute and its members. Moreover, the Alliance will bring together stakeholders from industry, health systems, government, advocacy, and philanthropy.

In the next 20 years, Milken estimates that the number of Americans dealing with Alzheimer's disorder or other dementias would almost double to 13 million. Two-thirds of individuals diagnosed with dementia are projected to be women. The institute further estimates that the direct and indirect expenses of dementia would reach nearly $380 billion in the same timeframe unless innovative therapies or improvements are made to the way dementia care is provided.

Nora Super, Senior Director of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging, who will lead the Alliance to Improve Dementia Care, implied that such numbers will test the aspects of society and influence the world of people living with dementia, their caregivers, and the whole communities. 

Through the assistance of the founding partners AARP, the Alzheimer's Association, Biogen, and the John A. Hartford Foundation, Alliance aims to transform the dementia treatment landscape. The institute will partner with leaders to create solutions, build system capacity, and integrate service and support. It will co-jointly work with federal advisory boards, and decision-makers, and government leaders to overcome long-standing care and payment barriers.

Moreover, the institute will involve decision leaders and involve shareholders to make decisions and build practical strategies to enhance dementia treatment. It will also create and promote policies that decrease disparities in prevalence and improve access to quality services for people at the greater risk for dementia (e.g., people of color, women).
