California Leaders Confront Alarming Rise in Alzheimer's Cases
Date:3/9/2011

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Anticipating a catastrophic increase in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, California leaders have completed the much-anticipated California State Plan for Alzheimer's disease, a disease estimated to double among Californians by the year 2030.  The plan is a 10-year course of action with guiding principles, goals and recommendations to prepare California for this growing health crisis.

"If we don't act now before the epicenter of the crisis hits us in 10 years, the economic and human costs will be insurmountable. Procrastination is simply not an option. I am absolutely confident that our State Plan will be a model for the nation."

The State Plan is intended to streamline government functions, reduce costs and increase efficiency through effective use of existing resources.  Its goals and recommendations include a commitment to research and system changes that minimize societal stigma and improve detection, diagnosis, treatment and care for individuals and families impacted by the disease.  It also addresses the challenges and opportunities to finance the recommendations.  These include restoring and enhancing California's home and community-based care system, as well as support for family caregivers and the
