CFA releases a new report: Reducing the Cost and
Risk of Dementia

Over the next 20 years, the number of people living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias in the United States is expected to nearly double. Women and certain minority populations, including African Americans and Latinos, will continue to be disproportionately impacted by the disease – both as patients and caregivers.

To address this global challenge, the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging has produced a new report, “Reducing the Cost and Risk of Dementia: Recommendations to Improve Brain Health and Decrease Disparities” by Nora Super, Rajiv Ahuja, and Kevin Proff. An executive summary is also available.

Reducing the cost and risk of Dementia

In this report, we have developed detailed recommendations to improve brain health, reduce disparities, and ultimately change the course of this devastating disease.

These recommendations center around five overarching goals:

  • Goal #1: Promote Strategies to Maintain and Improve Brain Health for All Ages, Genders, and Across Diverse Populations
  • Goal #2: Increase Access to Cognitive Testing and Early Diagnosis
  • Goal #3: Increase Opportunities for Diverse Participation in Research and Prioritize Funding to Address Health Disparities
  • Goal #4: Build a Dementia-Capable Workforce Across the Care Continuum
  • Goal #5: Establish Services and Policies that Promote Supportive Communities and Workplaces for People with Dementia and Their Caregivers
