He has sponsored legislation to require Medicare to pay for hearing aids for older Americans to improve their quality of life and increase their safety, as well as introducing legislation that would establish a national grant program to help states establish ‘Silver Alert’ notification systems to locate missing individuals suffering from Alzheimer's and other dementia-related illnesses.
