Help Create A Grand Plan for Alzheimer's

Efforts are underway to create a California State Plan for Alzheimer’s. This collaborative project is being guided by a public-private partnership involving the Alzheimer’s Association’s California Council and the State of California Health and Human Services Agency’s Alzheimer’s Advisory Committee. The purpose is to develop a policy roadmap for the next 10 years to address the growing needs of Californians and their families living with Alzheimer’s.

As part of this process, a number of community meetings are taking place around the state, including one hosted by the San Ysidro Health Center on June 19, which will be focused on Hispanic caregivers. In addition, a statewide online survey for Alzheimer’s family caregivers (former and current) has just been launched.

We encourage everyone reading impacted by Alzheimer's to take the online survey.

For more information, you can visit the San Diego Alzheimer's Association. The deadline for completing the survey is May 31, 2010. Thank you for taking the time to help map our future.
