Invest in New Hampshire’s Health Care Workforce

New Hampshire is home to 26,500 individuals living with Alzheimer’s and 48,000 unpaid caregivers. By 2025, the number of Granite Staters living with Alzheimer’s is estimated to increase by 23.1%. Despite the growing dementia population, significant health care workforce shortages threaten access to care for people living with dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association is urging state lawmakers to support directing American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to increase direct care workers and clinicians in the state. With sufficient staff, New Hampshire can enhance access to health care in areas of the state that are disproportionately impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
