COVID-19 and Dementia: Lessons for the Next Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has had disproportionate and dangerous effects throughout the Alzheimer’s and dementia community, from increased stress and financial strain for those living with dementia and their caregivers to the disruption of critical Alzheimer’s clinical trials. This town hall will examine the impacts of COVID-19 on the dementia community, particularly on Black and Latino families, and explore opportunities to build resiliency against the next pandemic through supportive public policies like paid family and medical leave, improved caregiver supports and strengthened research infrastructure. Key question: How can our nation build resiliency against future pandemics to protect the dementia community?
